A harbour-wide ceremony embracing and honouring the Dreaming of this place and our relationship to it. Enjoy live performances from the ABC concert at the Sydney Opera House and spectacular pylon projections.
The first fireworks allow our littlest spectators, who may nod off a little earlier, the chance to see a fantastic display. The display includes fireworks released from barges and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Includes the winning entry from the ABC’s Design Your Own Firework competition. Tune in to the synchronised simulcast on KIIS 1065.
Harbour of Light Parade
Sydney Harbour is illuminated with ships gliding across the water, enchanting spectators of all ages. Each vessel is decorated with colour changing light, dazzling the crowds and adding to the unique choreography as they dance in the harbour.
We celebrate the start of the new year in spectacular fashion. The display features a huge range of pyrotechnic effects launched from firing points on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and barges in the harbour. Watch a live stream. Tune in to the synchronised simulcast on KIIS 1065.
