Hellooooo! New year was cool, millions of people, fireworks, a giant glitter ball and of course, a minutes slience.
We went to a bar which was back from the main harbour up a hill giving a really good few of the Opera house and the harbour - stayed here and watched the first set of fireworks at 9pm and then stagered down to the harbour for the main event at 12pm. It was a really good atmosphere with sooooo many people and of course 3ft wide bats flying around our heads! Eerie!
Didn't stay long after the fireworks, just had a sobering walk back to the hostel about 8 million miles a way!
