NYE & Christmas
Tis the Season!
For everyone's comfort and safety, you are not allowed to drink alcohol on the beaches, parks and public streets. The area in red on the map to the left indicates where you are not allowed to drink alcohol in public spaces. There will be plenty of signs around Bondi throughout the Christmas period, as well as police and security. There's really no way you can really miss the message. On Christmas Day bags are inspected on the beaches and in the parks. If you are caught with alcohol it will be confiscated and you may also face fines. Alcohol and water really don’t mix well in Bondi and a huge majority of deaths by drowning have involved alcohol. There will be a whole lot of security and police to keep everyone safe this summer.
But never fear .... there are lots of hotels, wine bars and restaurants bars open early till late where you can quench your thirst safely!
If you bring alcohol to Bondi Beach it will be confiscated. And you can be fined. Yup, even on Christmas Day.

New Year 2013
Bondi sparkles on New Year's Eve. There are people everywhere and the night is warm and balmy and full of excitement. With a bit of a party plan and some fun-loving people around you it can be the best night of your life.
You will need to find a licensed venue if you plan on having a few drinks. This means you’ll need to get there in time before it’s at capacity and you will probably need to stay in the one place. We've put together this little list to help you on your way to 2014!
New Years Eve at Dudley Reserve
A chilled out event in a beautiful location with gorgeous views! Each year Waverley Council invites families to bring in the New Year at Dudley Page Reserve, Dover Heights.
This event is perfect for families and includes free kids rides, food stalls, a licensed bar (no BYO) and relaxed family entertainment plus amazing views of the harbour fireworks - all in a fun and controlled environment.

Shore Thing at Bondi Beach
Since 2005, Shore Thing has been Sydney’s favourite New Year’s Eve party, taking over the most famous stretch of sand in the world, Bondi Beach.
From Fatboy Slim, David Guetta, Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden to Snoop Dog and Calvin Harris last year, it’s the event that ensures New Year’s Eve keeps its reputation as the ‘Party of the Year’.
But this year’s line-up ensures it will not just be remembered but rather reverberate through you for years to come with the insanity of Knife Party to raise the non-existent roof and kings of dance music, The Chemical Brothers hitting the DJ decks to ensure that as 2012 draws to a close no one is going to be standing still.
Add to this musical mayhem a heap of fireworks lighting up the ocean and you will be well basking in your best New Year’s ever.
