Sydney is the self proclaimed New Year’s Eve capital of the world. Spectacular Sydney Harbour erupts with kaleidoscopic colours as fireworks are set off from a number of vantage points around harbour. Over 1.5 million people flock to the Sydney Harbour shores to marvel at the display. And, with Sydney being one of the first cities in the world to bring in the New Year, it attracts a 2.6 million national audience. One billion international viewers also tune in to see the Sydney fireworks extravaganza.

With so many people watching, Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations are a spectacle not to be missed. If you’re visiting Sydney at this time, you have the advantage of experiencing one of the city’s biggest and most beloved events. If you’re an Australian, or one of the 300,000 international tourists that the fireworks show attracts each year, then here’s a guide to Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations and how to get the most out of this celebration. After all, it only happens once a year, so you might as well make the most of it!

Vantage Points. There are 55 vantage points from which the fireworks display can be viewed at various locales around the harbour. The fireworks display can be seen from Gladesville to the Heads of Sydney Harbour, with the barges situated between Point Piper and Cockatoo Island. The sites vary in access, provided toilets, first aid, glass and alcohol restrictions, and food provisions. Also, a number of these vantage points are ticketed events. The event’s official website (http://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/nye/2010/) has specific information on each vantage point. Keep in mind that the sites closest to the Harbour Bridge attract the largest crowds.

9pm and midnight fireworks. The City of Sydney is sympathetic to the sleep patterns of our younger revellers, and there is a fireworks display at both 9 o’clock and midnight. The 9pm Family Fireworks display is a colourful and choreographed eight minute performance which fires from barges on the Harbour, the rooftops of city skyscrapers and other locations. The Family Fireworks are followed by the Harbour of Light Parade, which features more than 50 illuminated and decorated vessels sailing around a 15km harbour circuit. The midnight fireworks are the event’s main attraction and the reason why Sydney is the New Year’s Eve capital of the world. Fireworks are fired from barges on the Harbour, the rooftops of city skyscrapers and the unforgettable Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Public Transport. The City of Sydney advises taking public transport and leaving the car at home. With road closures and 1.5 million people flocking to the city centre it’s easier to get around on Sydney’s bus and rail network. Remember to check timetables, as there is a special New Year’s Eve schedule. Be prepared for crowds, the possibility of transport delays and that consuming alcohol on buses and trains is an offence! Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk.

Things to consider. Remember to check transport, event and vantage point details online before leaving home. Most vantage points will have bag checks and strict security, particularly in alcohol free sites. Planning ahead is the best way to ensure you have the best possible New Year’s Eve!

If you’re interested in visiting Sydney to bring in the New Year, then make sure you book your Sydney accommodation early. It’s the city’s busiest time of year, so get organised early. If you live in Sydney but outside of the city, then New Year’s Eve can be a fun excuse to book accommodation in Sydney for the night and avoid a long commute home.

Sydney comes alive on New Year’s Eve. Will you be here for the celebration?
