Life with kids in Sydney's East
Every year Randwick City Council proudly presents the Coogee Sparkles NYE fireworks at the family-friendly time of 9pm (note there is no midnight fireworks).
Families, local community and visitors gather along the coast at Coogee Beach to watch this fabulous 15-20 minute fireworks display. Many people make a day of it by swimming at the beach during the afternoon and enjoying a picnic dinner while waiting for the sun to set.
The fireworks are set off from Dunningham Reserve (near the Bali Memorial) which is located to the north of Coogee Beach.
The Coogee Sparkles can be seen from a distance and there are many vantage points in surrounding suburbs where you'll get a good view of the fireworks. Here are some locations:
