We spent the 2011 NYE in Sydney, to see the greatest fireworks show on earth.  An estimated 2 million people flooded the harbour and 1 billion people watched on TVs around the world.

We had a perfect vantage point from the balcony of a friend’s apartment, with a direct line view of the harbour bridge (the main event) but also the coordinated displays over Darling Harbour, the office buildings of the CBD, and the northside of the harbour.  It was pretty freaking sweet.

Pictures of our memorable day in Sydney are on the out and about page.
