Welcoming the New Year in North Sydney for a better view. If you do not want to be stuck in city and struggle in finding a good spot to see fireworks, you can get yourself up and go straight to North Sydney. Even though everywhere is crowded but in here, you still have a plenty of time to find a better spot though it is far away from the central. The Milson Park is the other side of the Harbour Bridge, opposite to the Opera House. However, be prepared that after the New Year fireworks finish, you have to walk for 3 hours to get to the Central station because there are many people there. It is like a zombies or parade (trust me) but it worths.
