Sydney New Years Eve fireworks

Every year the fireworks in Sydney Harbour get bigger and better, apart from a few pacific islands and New Zealand, we are the first to celebrate NYE. Our fireworks are pretty good and there are many places to view them from. New years eve was a very hot day and many people got to their spot early and waited for hours in the hot sun. It was over 30 degrees, then at about 4pm the storms came. There was lightening and thunder and the rain poured. However, at 9pm the sky cleared for the first lot of fireworks off the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

The midnight fireworks were also spectacular as always.

Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful Harbours in the world and the fireworks is Australia’s largest public event. It requires 60km of wiring and cabling and takes 15 months to plan. Maybe you saw some of it on the news in your country.

  1. I saw some of the fireworks on the telly, they looked amazing! I have been fortunate to witness them in person once many years ago, they were brilliant! We found a spot in the park (I’ve forgotten the name of it now) and sat there for hours not wanting to move and lose it! It was a great night! Wishing you a very happy 2019!!!
