To see your year out with a bang, make sure you hit one of these incredible celebrations on the vast land mass that is Australia.

Fireworks at the Sydney Harbour The Sydney Opera House is an attraction which is high on the list of any keen tourist’s top sights to see in Australia. But to enjoy it in a whole different way, this year the Sydney Harbour will be hosting its own fireworks event on New Year’s Eve . Visitors can flock to the ‘Coathanger’-style bridge outside the house and witness the fireworks, as attended by celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Paris Hilton. The evening will kick off with an air show at 6pm followed by water displays and projections onto the bridge. For information on how to get the best vantage points, click here.
