" A group of international celebrities will be forced to fly into Canberra very early on New Year's Day because of Sydney Airport's night curfew.The A-list stars will be celebrating New Year's Eve in Sydney before boarding a small aircraft to Canberra where a jumbo jet will take them directly to Las Vegas in time for New Year's Eve there.
It is believed Leonardo DiCaprio is among the movie stars wanting to take part in two New Year celebrations in one 'night'.
DiCaprio is in Sydney travelling with Jonah Hill and Jamie Foxx who are the co-stars in his two upcoming movies Django Unchained and The Wolf of Wall Street.
The group also includes Chace Crawford from Gossip Girl, Matthew Morrison from Glee, Colton Haynes from Teen Wolf, Entourage's Kevin Connolly, and DJs Dirty South and Samantha Ronson.
The party has been brought to the country as celebrity guests of Sydney's Star City Casino.
Canberra Airport managing director Stephen Byron says the capital's curfew-free status will allow the 747 to take off between 1:00am and 2:00am AEDT.
"We've always said Canberra Airport's got a key role as an overflow for Sydney in terms of this night time activity," he said.
"A lot of it would be 747 freighters but in this case the 747 freight is A-list celebrities and that's pretty exciting too." "
