New Years Eve in Wine Country

With another year almost done and dusted it’s time to start planning what to do for the big night! Welcoming in the New Year doesn’t have to come with the party planning stress – we’ve done the hard work and found some great places for you to spend your night.

Esca Bimbadgen – If you love nothing more than being around the ones you love with good food and drinks – Esca Bimbadgen has you covered this NYE! Indulge in their ‘Best Of’ 6 Course Degustation showcasing the best 6 dishes from their seasonal menu, along with sparkling wine on arrival and live music. If that’s not quite to your taste you can enjoy the simplicity of the Pizzeria, combining local produce with great craftsmanship – along with live music. Bookings are essential, as both options will sell out.

Harrigan’s Irish Pub – Enjoy luxury at Harrigan’s as they host their VIP NYE – complete with Champagne and canapés on arrival, a specially created two-course meal, live entertainment, private bar and one of the best views of the midnight fireworks display from the terrace. Tickets for this VIP event are $99 per person. Bookings essential. For more information and tickets visit

NYE at The Levee, Maitland – Time to celebrate the year that was! Get your family and friends together to wave goodbye to 2019 and start 2020 in style. As always, The Levee will be jam-packed from 5pm with market stalls, food vendors and fun, as the locals celebrate. Regarded as one of the most spectacular displays of New Year’s Eve fireworks in the Hunter region, Maitland also offers live entertainment, kids’ activities and plenty of room for twilight picnics.

Crowne Plaza, Hunter Valley – Get glam this NYE at Crowne Plaza’s All That Glitters party. Dance the night away with friends and family to local live music performed by Uptown and give 2020 the welcome it deserves. Enjoy canapés, cocktails, confetti and of course, fireworks.
