Sydney Harbour New Years Eve.
If you were to venture down to the Opera House or anywhere around Sydney Harbour for that matter anytime around New Years Eve you would notice a sea of people almost as deep as the harbour around which they stood.
And you would probably be asking yourself what all the fuss is about. I mean fireworks are fireworks right? And surely once you've seen one fireworks show then you've seen them all.
Apart from the glass in your life being well below half empty I retort by asking you to check out Sydney Harbour at anytime of the year when it is not New Years Eve.
You will notice a sea of people everywhere you go, regardless of the fact it's a long (long long) wait until the fireworks explode signifying the end of the year.
Why is Sydney Always so Busy?
|Revellers cram every vantage point the harbour has to offer. McMahons Point is a popular spot that fills up VERY quickly|
Because Sydney Rocks! Actually so do the Rocks... In Sydney. That's how much Sydney rocks!
But Why? It's sedimentary my dear (Watson). It's also igneous and metamorphic, but Sydney is well and truly surrounded by and supported by sandstone. So as bad as my attempt at humour through lame punnage action was, it was also factually on the mark.

New Years Eve in Sydney is... Crowded!
Sydney Harbour is home to the Opera House and The most famous coat hanger in the world - The Sydney Harbour Bridge. Add to these two world famous landmarks the most luscious parklands and a modern skyline and you have the recipe for one of the best views in the world.
As we established earlier, come down to Sydney at anytime of the year and you will find crowds everywhere, both locals and tourists alike.
In fact Sydney is one of those rare cities where you will find just as many Aussies from around the country visiting our wonderful harbour as you will international tourists.
If that isn't saying something about the natural beauty and attraction of Sydney Harbour then I don't know what is!
Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is - be warned. You need to make sure you are in Sydney to watch the fireworks on New Years Eve, but you also need to plan ahead or risk having to watch them through the cracks between two buildings in the backstreets of Surry Hills.... or something.
