Over 1.5 million people enjoyed an awe-inspiring firework display to welcome the New Year on Sydneyâ€™s iconic harbour this year. Every year the spectacular city put on a firework show that people literally travel half way around the world to see, and this year was no exception.
Celebrations started with an aerial show marking the sky above Sydney Harbour followed by a smoking ceremony, cleansing negative spirits, with a series of teaser fireworks. Family fireworks began at 9pm lighting up Sydney Harbour and Harbour Bridge with a stunning firework display choreographed to a special soundtrack. This year promised to be the biggest and best firework display to date, leaving the crowd in awe after 8 minutes of the best fireworks.
Following the 9pm fireworks a fleet of vessels turn on their lights to begin a magnificent parade around the Harbour. The parade includes access to the Sydney Harbour exclusion zone where passengers were treated to an exclusive view of the family fireworks, bridge effect and midnight firework display.
Midnight marked a blockbuster firework display signalling the start of a New Year. Fireworks fired from barges, rooftops, off skyscrapers and some fireworks were even set off from Sydney Harbour Bridge. As with the family fireworks, the midnight firework display was choreographed to a bespoke piece of music in the worldâ€™s best open theatre. After 15 months of planning the crowd was dazzled by the show, including, new firework tricks, old favourites and an unforgettable firework display finale.
