Sydney to host another New Year’s Eve spectacular

By Louise Morrin

There are many advantages to living in property in Carlton, but perhaps one of the biggest is being able to access one of the greatest fireworks displays on New Year's Eve. Sydney will once again be welcoming in the New Year with a bang, and everyone's invited along.

Both the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge will be focal points for the celebrations, which promise to be bigger and better than ever.

For the first time, special lighting effects will be used on the bridge along with 2,400 additional fireworks. Various creative consultants have come together to make sure the start of 2016 is as memorable as possible.

Sydney's lord mayor Clover Moore said: "Sydney has some of the world's most recognisable architecture and a stunning natural harbour teeming with wildlife.

"It's also home to some of the world's most exciting creative talent. This year we've combined all three to showcase Sydney to the rest of the world."

In previous years, as many as a million people have lined the harbour for a view of the spectacular display. This year looks set to be no exception, so make sure you're there early to be in with a chance of securing a good spot.

Christmas carolling will get you in the spirit

This isn't the only festive activity planned for residents of property in Carlton over the coming weeks. The City of Sydney has also announced that carol singers will be serenading shoppers throughout the CBD.

They'll be appearing along Pitt Street Mall on Thursday evenings, as well as beside the Christmas tree in Martin Place every night of the week. It's hoped that shoppers will be given some much-needed light relief as they tackle the stores ahead of Christmas Day.
