WOW - the label as the "World Famous" & "Best in the World" New Years Eve Fire Works is rightly Justified - With the Foti Fire Works right at the fore front we are right up there as staging world class Fire Work Events. This is truly a SHOW like NO OTHER - With the Sydney Harbour as the perfect stage and the Sydney Opera House / Harbour Bridge as the "Backdrops" . With 7 Tonnes of the colourful stuff and 5 Million Dollars later, its no wonder why over 1 Billion Watch it Worldwide and over 1 Million People flock to the Harbour Foreshore for some to wait over 24hrs in their "prime position" for the Greatest Fire Works Show on Earth -
I marked my spot at Blues Point Reserve, as its located on the North/ Western side of the bridge, that means less of a hassle leaving and only a short drive home - A great Vantage point Indeed - BUT as the show is set for the city side and with the Cloud of smoke drifting across the North/ Western Face it can make for some slightly different and unusual images...
New Year’s Eve in style with one of the largest, most technologically advanced fireworks display in the world.
