New Year’s Eve fireworks on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and other areas surrounding Sydney Harbour are arguably the greatest Sydney night event going around …
Certainly it’s as world-famous as NYE fireworks displays get, by virtue of the fact it’s one of the first great cities to herald in the new year. Okay, Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington get there first but Sydney is the one that’s on the global New Years Eve radar year after year.
It’s so vital to get the best spots that the City of Sydney local government has even created a website about New Years Eve so punters can perch themselves on the best vantage points www.sydneynewyearseve.com
