2014 Sydney New Year’s Eve

What is 2014 Sydney New Year’s Eve?

Sydney New Year’s Eve is renowned globally as one of the most spectacular events in the world.  It is a celebration of the New Year with a spectacular fireworks display set against a glittering Sydney Harbour.

Every year there is a new theme and Creative Ambassador to bring the theme to life through their vision. This makes every Sydney New Year’s Eve unique.  The theme for 2014 is Inspire – a word that symbolises Sydney.  This year’s Creative Ambassador is actor Jack Thompson, a legendary figure of Australian cinema.
