The night-time economy generally involves social, cultural and business activities that take place from 6pm - 6am. The night-time economy is a key driver of growth, and a significant contributor to the economy, employing around 1.17 million people across Australia and generating over $121 million in sales turnover nationally. Sydney has a vibrant night-life that attracts visitors and boosts the local economy, employing over 32,411 people1.

The NSW Government is implementing a range of initiatives to ensure Sydney’s night-time economy continues to offer vibrant and diverse cultural experiences and delivers support to artists, musicians, businesses and their local communities for the long-term.
