Sydney New Year’s Eve is the world’s ultimate fireworks event, reaching 1.6 million people by Sydney Harbour, 2.3 million across Australia and more than a billion worldwide.
The Sydney fireworks unite our global and diverse city as we share in the wonder and magic that is Sydney in summer. It is a time when the world’s gaze turns to our magnificent harbour, where we come together to embrace the future.
Don’t miss the spectacular Program of Events in the lead-up to Sydney’s famous fireworks display. Imagination, creativity and rope lights combine to produce an amazing parade of illuminated vessels.

9pm Family Fireworks
Designed and choreographed specifically for children, these fireworks will delight and dazzle audiences as the night sky fills with colour. These fireworks are a prelude to the spectacular display to follow at midnight.
Midnight Fireworks and Sydney Harbour Bridge Effect
At the stroke of midnight, we celebrate the start of a New Year! Sydney does this in style by lighting up the night sky with a spectacular fireworks display launched from seven barges on the harbour, the rooftops of seven city skyscrapers and, unforgettably, from Sydney Harbour Bridge. Bringing more than 1.5 million people to the harbour, this majestic fireworks display is the reason why Sydney is the New Year’s Eve Capital of the World.
