New year in Sydney for us older folk!
My female partner and I (both late 50's) are in Sydney for 4 nights staying at a Travelodge.
Obviously we want to see the fireworks on New years Eve.
Any ideas and suggestions of where to do this?
We are not travelling on a tight budget and can pay a bit, but nowhere near the $1000 (each) i got quoted for the Opera House!!
No offence to the younger people, but dont really want to spend hours with them while they get drunk and scream and shout (sorry guys and no offence; been there and done it).
So any advice would be gratefully accepted.

From experience, the view from the mosman/cremorne/near the zoo is more families than young drunks, so you might want to stick to those areas. mrs macquaries chair has the most amount of tourists of any age group. the balmain area is also full of families, and while also crowded is less crowded than the circular quay area. You do have to get there early, regardless of area. I've camped out from 12-1230pm and the area is pretty crowded by then.

I'm getting OAS but am just on hold at 29!
