World-famous New Year’s Eve Fireworks Set To Light Up Sydney

Sydney is one of the most spectacular places in the world to celebrate New Year’s Eve, thanks to its world-famous fireworks that light up locations across the city. Destination NSW reveals some of the best vantage points for visitors to welcome in the New Year from family-friendly viewing at Darling Harbour, to ticketed events at Taronga Zoo, and grassy spots along the Harbour foreshore.

A new timelapse video showcasing the fireworks from last year’s celebrations has been released today, giving visitors a taste of what’s to come when the city lights up to welcome in 2017.

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said, “As the first major city in the world to ring in the New Year, Sydney’s famous midnight fireworks attracts eyes from across the globe, but nothing beats witnessing our harbour city’s New Year’s Eve first-hand.

“With Sydney such a popular destination for visitors for New Year’s Eve, we know that local hotels, restaurants and cafes will book out fast, so I encourage those planning to come to Sydney to welcome in 2017 to pre-plan and book their travel in advance to make the most of all the great events and activities on offer,” said Mr. Ayres.

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said, “New Year’s Eve is a magical night in Sydney, attracting visitors from across the country and the globe. With many locations across the harbour foreshore to view the fireworks, as well as festivities and parties to experience, celebrating New Year’s Eve in Sydney is another great reason to book a holiday to NSW.”
