New Years Eve in Sydney is one of the largest events of thee year and arguably the most spectacular! If your visiting Sydney then its a must to be at one of the many vantage points on harbour to take in the boats parade & the fireworks. It takes 15months of pre-planing for the mid-night fireworks where literally the worlds largest TV networks tune in for the 30min light, fireworks and music display! Its seriously cool stuff but for many Sydney siders its either something you love or something you hate as our shores are crowded with over a million people as the city is basically cut off from transport and it can be hard to get anywhere quickly!

This year the theme is creation, if your around the harbour here's the low-down;
  • 3pm-6pm - Aerial planes display
  • 8:30pm - Acknowledgement of Country ceremony with projections on the harbour bridge & dancing fire flames on the harbour
  • 9pm - 'family fireworks'
  • 9:08pm - Creation theme kicks in with 'storm effect' on the Harbour Bridge
  • 9:15pm - Harbour of Light parade, where Syd's best boats/yachts dress up in lights
  • 12:00pm - midnight fireworks
  • 12 - 6am - Parties, concerts, clubs every venue pretty much as something on
