Hi razzaefc

The tickets are $150 and you can only book them if you book to stay at the hostel (minimum 5 night stay)

Details are on the rocks website (download the pdf file).

The last time I was at a NYE party in Sydney (00-01), tickets were 100 AUD and the location wasn't as good as this one. And that was considered cheap, with essentially nothing included.

Ooooo I really don't know what to do here!

A question for the people that have been before to Sydney before - Is this worthwhile? As it is only until 1am - what happens then, does Sydney go crazy haha? What other options are there to do on NY?

I suppose I best get booked in if you all think it is the best idea :)

the terrace pass sounds like a perfectly good deal to me. we have booked is aswell. as far as i am aware, the tickets are limited to 150 people. I reckon that is a good number, it won't be too over crowded so there will be more room to enjoy the view, but its also enough to have a decent party up there and not feel like you're missing out on the thousands partying on the streets below.
it's also fully catered, which i believe to be a bbq buffet style set-up. that will be good enough for me, at least we won't have to worry about sorting food out .
it also mentions 5 free drink vouchers, i think ill be having a few more than that though to be honest ;)
curious as to what the free 'goody bag' may be haha, how exciting! probably a couple of party poppers and a party hat!

can't wait for it now, i reckon it will be one of the highlights of our trip!

Yes 5 drinks had me wondering is that what people expect to drink on a whole evening

I can't wait either Sydney for NYE has to be on most peoples "to do" list!!

I'm also thinking though what happens after 1am as the night will just be getting going then?

I reckon once 1am comes,go back to your room,get the bags you have obviously already filled full of ale,and head to the streets!!!!

I agree! Sounds like a plan - I am sooooo excited!!! Maybe a silly question to some but is it OK to drink on the streets in sydney??! x

ooh I like this plan too :) we need to start a little YHA the rocks group up on facebook for NYE!?

Yeah, it goes without saying that we will be venturing out after the terrace shuts. 1am just aint gonna cut it! lol. and as for the facebook group, there already is one for 'YHA The Rocks NYE'. I joined it a while ago. looks as though its gone abit stale since last year, but i'm sure we can breath some life back into it :). get joining everyone who is going!!!
