Sydney, Australia’s New Year’s Eve Celebration (video) CheapOair Staff December 30, 2009 Videos This blog post was updated on December 20, 2018. If your not one of the lucky one’s to witness the celebration in Sydney first hand, I would certainly recommend going out of your way to try and find a way to watch it. The fireworks show is amazing.
