Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Sydney is, without a doubt, a special experience! With the spectacular 9pm and 12am Sydney New Year Fireworks putting up quite the show and painting the sky with vibrant colours, everyone’s gathered together to celebrate the end of the year and the start of something new. With over 1 million people gathered to watch the Sydney New Year Fireworks, a New Year’s Eve cruise along Sydney Harbour is undoubtedly the best way to catch the show! With a handful of harbour-centric venues gearing up for the festivities with epic New Year’s Eve parties, it’s not difficult to get spoilt by choice. If you’re looking to escape the crowds, it’s imperative that you break the bank a little- the New Year comes around only once a year, after all!
The theme of this year’s Sydney New Year Fireworks is yet to be announced, but last year’s ‘Pulse of Sydney’ display was a force to be reckoned with! If one looks past the minor typo welcoming 2018 (didn’t we all get enough of THAT year?!), it was quite the impressive spectacle! The harbour city truly comes alive on New Year’s Eve with a colourful sea of people, the illuminated summer skies lit up with spectacular fireworks and its reflections off the roving waters. A sight to behold! The annual Sydney New Year Fireworks display is the epitome of year-end celebration- being the first of the world’s major cities to ring in the New Year- and it does this honour complete justice.
