Following the 9PM Family Fireworks, the Harbour of Light Parade® commences. Each craft in this illuminated flotilla of over 40 boats has submitted a design bid for inclusion. The vessels will be dressed in orange-coloured rope light to create a consistent, vibrant colour wash as they move along their Harbour journey throughout the night. For more information on how to get on board a boat for New Year’s Eve, check out the Harbour of Light Parade ® Vessels.

Finalists of the 2014 Harbour of Light Parade® best design competition will have a premium viewing area for the Midnight Fireworks Display. Vessels are judged on their light rope designs and the winner will be announced on New Year’s Eve. This year’s finalists are:

  • John Cadman II
