ah thanks guys youve all been so helpful!!
im pinning my freind down tommorrow night and we booking whoo hoo
Just one last questions, it seems the Rocks is the place to be, how about Kings Cross (ive been reading its a party place) or is that too far?
how about Kings Cross (ive been reading its a party place) or is that too far?
Kings Cross is the red light district. There are other, better places to.....party.
And yes, it is too far. If you're staying in Sidders for NYE, then the Rocks is the best place.
The rocks has its fair share of pubs and clubs, however this area will be packed on NYE. The public area surrounding will have alcohol free zones. Forget trying to see the fireworks around the rocks, every vantage point will be booked out for a private function. If ur partying in the rocks (or around that area) best places to check out are the orient, observor, cruise bar, Tank night club (Establishment), Ivy and if ur desperate Jacksons on george. However it being NYE there is always an entry at the door. Be prepared to pay top $$$.
Kings cross isn't to bad, even tho it is the red light district its having a little resurgence lately and it has some of sydney's famous iconic bars and clubs. Check out; piano room trade mark (underneath the coke cola sign), sugar mill, kit & kaboodle, world bar, kings cross hotel, the tunnel night club (if it opens by then) and if ur desperate Gold fish or the empire.
Again it being NYE be prepared to pay $$$ to get in. However if u scrub up well and u fit the right "look" u'll probably get in. You should have an advantage as ur english and female...always helps..
If want to party with the rest of the back packers u will find them in; scu bar, coogee bay hotel, scary canary, side bar, 3 wise monkeys and if ur english; bondi beach hotel or bondi beach..
There are other places to check out, try; Oxford street or Victoria street, also check out this site http://www.inthemix.com.au/

OH MY GOD You just made my year!!!
the Hed Kandi cruise is exactly my cup of tea... im now sobbing into my tea that its sold out ;-(
im guessing that not only do I need to book my hostel this weekend but also my NYE Ticket?
Don't get too despondent, cruise gets booked out every year because of its location. To tell you the truth most places r a little slow this year to release tickets for NYE, opera bar for instance won't release NYE tickets until October. Just get ur accom booked this weekend and keep ur eyes on Gum tree, in the mix or craigs list. u never know u might find some Hed Kandi tickets floating around..
maze and wake up are both really good hostels
