Sydney has a great reputation for fireworks and New Year celebrations on the Harbour. After all it is a perfect setting for a fireworks show. This year, however, it has been tough as the bushfires around the country with great losses of lives, property and natural resources has made many people question the wisdom of letting off fireworks as way of celebrating the coming of the New Year. Alternatives that have been proposed include laser light shows, which seems to me a much more sensible way of doing things.

All the best for a wonderful New Year! I hope that 2020 is full of health, happiness and prosperity for you all.

  4. I can't help feeling the fireworks should not have gone ahead this year despite all the planning. So many Australians are effected by the bush fires raging through the country. I wish you a happy and healthy 2020.

  5. Lots of places offer fireworks on New Years. We don't but that probably isn't a bad thing since our weather tonight would have cancelled them anyway. Too much wind and rain. - Margy

  6. Yes, I think it is time for everyone to consider an alternative to fireworks. Laser lights with good strong music would do just fine.

  7. Such a stunning display of fireworks! Love, love, love the photos.

    Happy 2020!
