New Years Eve

sydney harbour bridge fireworks new years eve NYE

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

Natural Night Highlights of Sydney

sydney harbour bridge by night

Naturally enough, Sydney is an attractive city precisely because of nature. The natural beauty of Sydney Harbour, while stunning by day, is even more evocative by night.

The greatest time of all to visit Sydney for its visual night delights is December-January when, apart from the explosive vision of the Sydney Harbour Bridge haemorrhaging fireworks, there’s firework displays seemingly every night due to the proliferation of Carols By Candlelight in every suburban park leading up until Christmas, followed by a great final summer firework show at Darling Harbour on the night of Australia Day.

However there is now a night event to rival December-January and this is the winter night event Vivid Sydney an outdoor festival of light which is utterly enchanting.
