Prior to the epidemic, nearly a million people would attend the celebrations in Sydney, while a billion viewers tuned in from across the world. After two years of COVID delays, Australia is getting ready to enjoy its first restriction-free New Year’s Eve, with over a million revellers anticipated to rush to Sydney’s harbourfront to view a spectacular fireworks show.
With a public countdown and fireworks show above its iconic Opera House, Sydney is one of the globe’s first major cities to welcome in the New Year, attracting massive TV audiences throughout the world.
Crowd restrictions and limited celebrations resulted from lockdowns at the end of 2020 and an increase in Omicron cases at the end of 2021. However, prohibitions for festivities have been relaxed this year as Australia, like many other nations across the world, reopened its borders and eliminated social distancing regulations.
“We are proclaiming Sydney is back on New Year’s Eve as we kick off festivities throughout the world and bring in the New Year with a boom,” said Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney.
“2022 was another year of immense hardships as we worked to recover from the devastation of the COVID-19 outbreak, but now we put the year behind us and look forward to 2023 with optimism.
A rainbow of colour will light up Sydney Harbour, with 2,000 fireworks released from the Sydney Opera House’s four sails and 7,000 fireworks thrown from more points on the Sydney Harbour Bridge than ever before. Fireworks will be released from four building rooftops to frame the stunning spectacle for the first time in 12 years, according to the organizers.
