Enjoy the spectacular Sydney fireworks from public viewing areas dotted around beautiful Sydney Harbour. Ticketed events are at some vantage points, including the Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Garden and harbour islands. Pre-show entertainment for the world-famous fireworks starts at 6pm, with a thrilling air show above the Harbour. The aerial acrobatics is followed by a tug boat’s splendid water displays and then a Welcome to Country, a traditional Aboriginal welcome ceremony. There are two dazzling fireworks displays. The first is at 9pm for families with young children and then at the stroke of midnight, fireworks are launched from the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and seven barges on the gleaming harbour for a spectacular start to the New Year.
