New Year’s Eve fireworks in Sydney

Have you ever been for the New Year’s in Sydney? The fireworks on the New Year’s Eve in Sydney are as famous as the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This is one of the events the world watches the most over the wires. You see it once and you know why!

The display happens in two stages – the Family Fireworks at 9 p.m. and the Midnight Fireworks.

What makes the fireworks so impressive is the “bridge effect” as the Sydneysiders casually call it. Every year the fireworks display has a meaningful theme and last year it was “creation.” The sun that was displayed on the Harbour Bridge during the fireworks, as witnessed by the whole world, was spectacular to say the least!
Fireworks are set off from the bridge, nearby buildings and barges on either side of the harbour to form a bright colourful message. There are fireworks launched from roadways too, and eco-friendly pyrotechnics is used for this massive display.

The best way to see the fireworks is to be onboard a cruise boat. From the boat, one can see the display and the lightings around the whole of the harbour from the best of angles. Magistic Cruises and Sydney Showboats provide great dining luxury with extensive deck area from where one can watch the colourful explosion that lights up the Sydney skies! These boats are also part of the Harbour of Light Parade, another spectacular display event on the harbour on the New Year’s Eve.
