Watch Sydney New Year fireworks

Sydney New Year's Eve is an annual multi-tiered event held every New Year's Eve over

Sydney Harbour, centring on the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia. Its main features are

two pyrotechnic displays,the "9 pm Family Fireworks" and the "Midnight Fireworks",

both of which are televised nationally with the latter televised around the world.

Synchronised to a soundtrack, the fireworks explode off the arches, catwalk and roadway

of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and also the city buildings. The barge in front of the bridge

features occasionally during the show to synchronise with the bridge's fireworks.

The closing sequence of the show features the bridge before all firing points explode

in an "all-white" finale. The event was first televised on NYE 1996–97. The 9 pm Family

Fireworks was originally the main show and went for about twenty minutes.

The Midnight Fireworks lasted about three minutes and only

featured Sydney Tower. From NYE 1999, the tradition began of having the main show 

at Midnight. The NYE 1998 Midnight Fireworks had a length of ten minutes. In 1999,

they were increased to twenty-five minutes. In 2001,

the fireworks went for fifteen minutes. From NYE 2005 and to date,the Midnight Fireworks

went for twelve minutes.The City of Sydney Council is the official presenter

of Sydney New Year's Eve. Each year the event takes on a new theme and is regularly

viewed by more than one million people at the harbour and one billion worldwide for the

televised Midnight Fireworks. For the 2010/11 event, an audience of 1.5 million watched

the display from the local harbour foreshores and 1.1 billion are reported to have watched it globally.
