Noone puts on a New Year's Eve spectacular quite like Sydney.
Having spent NYE beneath Big Ben in London, and penned in at Times Square New York, I can say that neither comes remotely close to the awe-inspiring atmosphere and camaraderie of a NYE spent around Sydney Harbour with a million of your closest friends.
A pyrotechnic orgy worth AU$3million dollars exploded last night, firing off buildings in the city CBD and cascading across the Sydney Harbour Bridge as the crowd gave a collective "aaaaahhhhhhh".
The theme this year was A Diamond Night in Emerald City, celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Bridge is always the focal point of the midnight fireworks and I was lucky enough to witness it all from the exclusive vantage point at Dawes Point (thanks AN!).
