Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks 2023

Sydney welcomed in 2023 with a impressive screen of fireworks released from the Harbour Bridge, the Opera Home, rooftops and pontoons on the harbour.

Men and women had been finding out prime positions together the waterside from Saturday early morning, only partly deterred by scattered showers. Aerial images at 6pm confirmed the harbour packed as crowds waited for the evening’s activities.

For some, which include Sunita Popal and her companion Alan Espinoza from Los Angeles, looking at Sydney’s planet-famed show has been a ten years-long ambition.

“I’ve been dreaming about it for 10 many years,” Popal claimed forward of the fireworks. “We’re expecting the most effective fireworks clearly show we have ever observed.”

The to start with set of fireworks at 9pm was developed by Indigenous artists Carmen Glynn-Braun and Dennis Golding, who graduated from the College of NSW’s school of artwork and layout three a long time ago.

A smoking ceremony, pylon projections, lighting effects, and Welcome to State preceded the very first fireworks show.

Spectators cheered as the initial animations had been projected onto the pylons of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and fireworks swirled about the harbour, forming part of a demonstrate that was 6 months in the producing.

The midnight extravaganza dazzled spectators with a rainbow waterfall cascade and new effects known as slipping leaf and ghost shells.
