Mountains home

NYE in SYD

I got to Sydney in time for the big New Years Eve festivities and the city was hopping. After spending the morning wandering around Darlington Harbour and the waterfront, I noticed that crowds were starting to form in some of the better locations to view the Harbour fireworks. So about 2pm I starting heading over to the Opera House and was surprised to find on my arrival that there were already thousands of people there. In fact, the Circular Quay area was full of people and closed off and the Botanical Gardens above the Opera House were closed for a private party. I was able to find some open space in a grassy area with a good view of the Harbour so I sat down to wait for 10 hours.

If I would have know
