Sounds like a great idea to me. Im staying in the Kings Cross area (i think) from the 27th so would be well up for that rather than meeting on NYE :)

Are you ???

That's news to me!! :) lol

Have you altered your booking.

Your George St dude... no where near Kings Cross and thank goodness to!

I don't think your hostel is In Kings Cross I think it's near Central. I think most people are staying near Central, there's a decent backpacker bar underneath Wake up hostel called sidebar. Could maybe suggest there to meet up?

Side bar is ok - im not doing Scubar though! That's crap! and i hate that place with a passion :)

There is also the Irish bar on corner of George St - scarry murphy's??

Im in wake up at the moment so I will find out if there is any plans for those two dates! I think 29th would be best because your going to have to be up early on NYE to get the best spots in the city for the firework display.

I was thinking Botanical Gardens, but you have to be in early possibly before 2pm if not earlier to get spots.

I will try and find out.

Anyone in the city at the moment message me! :)

Hey, I just booked my accommodation at Sydney Central YHA today so it looks like I'll be in Sydney for NYE! I'm 25/f traveling alone so I would love to meet up with you lot. I'm arriving on Dec. 30th and this is my first time to Australia so I'm a little overwhelmed from all the info on where to go and what to do for the New Year. But I'm absolutely keen for anything with good vibes.

Shame scubar is now crap used to be okay a few years back! Never mind!

Yeh see If you can find out if there's anything going on those evenings. I'd be surprised if there wasn't something going on, on the 29th because that's a Saturday and they tend to have something on.

I'm happy to go with the 29th for the same reason. I was hoping to do the botanical gardens on NY and I think you're right in saying its pretty much a whole day thing. Anyone else okay with the 29th?

KCGill- I know you won't be around until the 30th but you can still come meet up with us for NY!! :-)

OK so i totally got this wrong hahaha !!! :) and in my defence i did say 'i think' lol

I've just looked at the location and yeah no where near. But we are apparently round the corner from Wake Up so it's all good..

I dont know any of these bars but am more than happy to try them all out !!!

That's awesome! I literally sighed in relief. I'm going to be in one of the all girls 6 bed rooms. Very excited that they have a sauna, bar, and pool! And seem to be centrally located. And I think someone posted a picture saying you can see the Opera House from the rooftop! I'm going to be visiting in friend in Melbourne first so I'm not sure what time I'll be flying in but I expect it'll be morning/early afternoon on the 30th.
