2020 has been a year of challenges, and we understand that the residents of Hunters Hill will be looking forward to celebrating the end of the year.

We are continually working with NSW Police to ensure the safety of our community, and would like to provide our residents with direction and information on New Year’s Eve in 2020 following the NSW Government announcement to continue with the cancelled City of Sydney fireworks display on the Sydney Harbour Bridge at midnight and our previous updates from opens in a new window23 October 2020, 3 December 2020 and 14 December 2020.

People are encouraged to limit non-essential gatherings over the New Year period where possible to further minimise the risk of transmission in the community.

The current public health order is:

  • 5 visitors to your home
  • 30 people gathering in a public place
  • Visit to Aged Care facilities not permitted until 6 January 2021.

The Government is watching the emerging situation closely and will update the community accordingly should any further changes be required.

What does this mean for Hunters Hill residents and businesses?

Clarkes Point and the Woolwich Peninsula are traditionally popular vantage points for people looking to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

We have been advised that there will be only one 7 minute display at midnight on the Harbour Bridge, with no barge displays proposed west of the bridge.

Council will be supporting NSW Police to manage the risk of Public Health Order breaches and safety of our residents, and minimise the cost impacts of traffic.

  • Bus Routes, including 538, will be unable to enter the Peninsula from 11am, 31 December 2020 until 1 January 2020. The last stop before the Peninsula will be at the Hunters Hill Hotel.
