As all eyes fall on Sydney this New Year's Eve, the city's council is offering a number of hints and tips to help revellers stay safe as they enjoy the festivities. It won't just be residents of property in Carlton who descend on the Harbour City to welcome in 2016, but interstate visitors and those from much further afield.
The City of Sydney has enlisted the help of more than 180 volunteers, who'll be on hand to answer any questions you might have and point you in the right direction. Not only this, trained members of the Salvation Army Street Team will be manning Safe Spaces to ensure everyone gets home safely.
These spaces will provide basic services such as giving out water, or help getting back to a hotel if someone isn't sure where they are. Volunteers will also be around to assist people in finding their friends and family and even basic first aid.
Six information booths are being set up throughout the city and you'll find them at the Rocks, Circular Quay, Macquarie Street, the QV Building, George Street and Shakespeare Place. It's estimated around 1,500 staff will available over the course of the evening to make sure the celebrations go without a hitch.
Lord mayor Clover Moore commented: "Volunteers make a fantastic contribution to Sydney New Year's Eve; they're part of what makes the event so special. We couldn't do it without them."
