JOIN MORE THAN A MIL­LION peo­ple lin­ing the Syd­ney Har­bour fore­shore, as well as bil­lions watch­ing across Aus­tralia and around the world, as Syd­ney wel­comes in 2019.

The of­fi­cial pro­gram of events kicks off at 6pm with an aerial dis­play tak­ing over the skies above Syd­ney Har­bour. Af­ter that, fire tugs cre­ate strik­ing wa­ter dis­plays against the set­ting sun, fol­lowed by a Wel­come to Coun­try and smok­ing cer­e­mony at 7.30pm, where a Gadi­gal El­der will wel­come vis­i­tors to Gadi­gal land from aboard a Tribal War­rior ves­sel, as eu­ca­lyp­tus smoke cleanses the har­bour of any bad spir­its.

The much-an­tic­i­pated 9pm fam­ily fire­works il­lu­mi­nate Syd­ney Har­bour in dra­matic fash­ion and at 9.08pm watch the en­chant­ing Har­bour of Light Pa­rade and Call­ing Coun­try py­lon pro­jec­tions, em­brac­ing and hon­our­ing the Dream­ing of this place and our re­la­tion­ship to it.

Our world-fa­mous fire­works dis­play kicks off on the stroke of mid­night, with daz­zling fire­works erupt­ing from barges on the wa­ter, the Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge and Syd­ney Opera House.

Of­fi­cial ra­dio broad­caster KIIS 1065 hosts the event live from Syd­ney Har­bour start­ing at 3pm. Tune in for the of­fi­cial syn­chro­nised sound­track for the 9pm and mid­night fire­works dis­plays.
