2016 is almost here and it's time to say final goodbye to 2015. One of the best ways to welcome the New Year is to be a part of Sydney Fireworks ceremony that is one of the best New Year firework ceremonies across the world including the ceremonies held in New York, London and Dubai.
To witness the Sydney Fireworks at its best, there are a number of locations from where you can get the best views like Bradfield Park, Observatory Hill or the recently opened Barangaroo Reserve. Besides these well-known locations, there are several other ones from where you can enjoy the ceremony to its fullest.
Also, with a massive crowd expected to gather around the major areas, it is preferable to view the ceremony from other nearby areas where you can celebrate and party without any hassle and at the same time, view the firework ceremony properly too.
The Sydney Opera House
Perhaps the most popular tourist place, the Sydney Opera House is one of the best places to celebrate the New Year Eve 2016. It offers front row seats for viewing the Fireworks ceremony.
The visitors will be treated to aerial displays at 6pm and colourful pylon projections at 8:30pm. Midnight fireworks will occur for a duration of 12 minutes and will feature a range of pyrotechnic effects.
The venue is located in Pyrmont and is expected to have 15,000 people to celebrate New Year's Eve along the water's edge.
It is known for architectural designs and grasslands with playgrounds and cafes where the visitors can prepare their own barbecues and picnic while waiting for the fireworks to start. There is no entry fee.
Cockle Bay Wharf
It is one of the busiest places to be on New Year's Eve as numerous families gather here to watch fireworks display.
This year, the venue is hosting a light show at 8pm before the fireworks start at 9pm. It can accommodate up to 46,000 people so it would be a better idea to book a table beforehand if you are planning to celebrate here.
If you are planning to watch the fireworks close-up, Bradfield Park is the best place. It has views of the eastern side of Sydney Harbour Bridge and it includes Milsons Point that is a popular site for families, accommodating up to 50,000 people.
The entry is free and the venue will be open from 12pm onwards. However, if you are planning to visit it, get there as early as possible as it quickly reaches its maximum capacity.
