What to do for NYE?

There’s that question again – ‘how are you celebrating this new year?’ Will you be spending it with friends and family for a close intimate party or will you be welcoming 2011 with a big party? For those of you who are undecided, here are a few ideas and tips on how to party your way into 2011.

Head to the city

The countdown to midnight will kick off from 5pm with pre-show entertainment around Sydney harbour. There will be an Indigenous Smoking Ceremony featuring five indigenous vessels to cleanse the harbour of evil spirits followed by an Acknowledgement to Country show.

The Harbour of Light Parade will sail a 15km circuit around the harbour which will feature over 50 illuminated vessels decorated with lights to represent this year’s New Year’s Eve theme – Awaken the Spirit.

The traditional family fireworks at 9pm will give a prelude to the midnight fireworks with an eight minute choreographed performance firing from four spots on the harbour, the rooftops of some skyscrapers and also some other surprise locations.

But the big spectacular which takes 15 months of planning is the 12 minute midnight fireworks display firing from seven barges on the harbour, the rooftops of skyscrapers and of course the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Hot Spots – in and around town

With the fireworks being the highlight of each New Year’s Eve celebration, it’s always crucial to get the best seats in the house. And the only way to do it is to know where to go:
