Amanda, Andrew - Just shot them from the TV with my phone camera, Amanda.

I saw it only on TV last night. Sydney is a 400 mile drive up the highway from Wang'.

I should have made this an open thread, anyone please feel free to add any of your city's NYE images.

Re: Happy NEW YEAR 2017 from OZ!

I began watching it at 7:30 Ross but it was so boring that I switched channels when those kids on motor cycles began their act that I had seen before. Same with the dancers. But it's recording now as i watch Queen Victoria's Children so later I'll just fast fwd it to see if there's anything new..

Yes a Happy New Year to all. Think all worldwide displays had their thing - but you can't beat the Wheel

Scroogey !!
I just think that all that all those millions going up in smoke could be utilised in a much more humane fashion to celebrate the start of a New Year.
Couldn't be bothered even to watch

Happy New Year to you too Mark and everyone on the forum. I saw the fireworks on TV too. When you see the Sydney ones on the News here it sort of marks the start of the year end if you know what I mean.

Thanks Phill and all - your fireworks displays were also spectacular, fortunately no serious incidents anywhere world wide aside from a couple of accidental deaths here in Oz by idiots lighting their own.
