Coogee Sparkles Welcomes the New Year With a Bang!

Coogee Sparkles

Celebrate the New Year with a bang! It’s all systems go for the return of Coogee Sparkles as Coogee gears up to bid farewell to 2021 with a spectacular display of fireworks on New Year’s Eve.

At exactly 9 pm on New Year’s eve, the skies over Coogee will light up with a dazzling 20-minute fireworks display that will be accompanied by roving entertainment and music to last from the afternoon all the way to the evening.

Make sure that you come early to reserve your spot. The following locations offer fantastic vantage points of view:

  • Goldstein Reserve, Coogee
  • Coogee Beach
  • Grant Reserve & Trenerry Reserve
  • Clovelly Beach car park
  • Burrows Park headland
  • Local restaurants and hotels: many local establishments host excellent New Year’s Eve events within sight of the fireworks

Do take note that there will be a fenced fireworks exclusion zone on Dunningham Reserve headland. And since this event will happen with the Public Health Orders in effect, would-be attendees are advised to regularly check the Council’s social media or visit randwick.nsw.gov.au/sparkles for any updates prior to and on the day of the event.



Also, beginning midday, road closures and special event clearways will be enforced and the limited parking in the area could be easily filled-up, hence, going to the venue by walking, public transport or rideshare service is advised. 

“We’re so pleased that we can offer people the chance to end a challenging year on such a high note,” Randwick Mayor Dylan Parker said

“This is one of Coogee’s signature outdoor events. People come from all around to witness the incredible display while soaking up the relaxing coastal atmosphere, so it truly is an honour for the Council to be able to provide this New Year’s event for locals and visitors alike.”
