New Year's Eve at Cockatoo Island is a chance to celebrate a new dawn with loved ones in a historic setting on the world’s best harbour. As either a camper or guest in one of our charming houses or apartments, you’ll spend the biggest night of the year close to the action... but far from the crowds! Not only will you get to stay in award-winning accommodation, you’ll also get to bask in the city's world famous NYE fireworks.
Want to be a happy camper this New Year’s Eve? Book one of our camping packages, on sale NOW. There will be multiple options to choose from, catering for different preferences, budgets, and group sizes.
A range of pre-erected tents will be available on the Northern and Eastern Aprons as part of our Standard and Deluxe Camping Packages. Options include one-bedroom and two-bedroom tents with waterfront views. Plus, an area of the Eastern Apron is reserved for guests who would prefer to bring their own tent.

Prices range from $400 for the BYO tent option to $1,700 for the two-bedroom waterfront deluxe package. A minimum two-night stay applies to stays in our campground – guests will arrive on Friday 30 December 2022 and depart on Sunday 1st January 2023.
