Sydney New Year’s Eve is renowned globally as one of the most spectacular events in the world. Join us as we celebrate the New Year with our famous fireworks display set against glittering Sydney Harbour.
Every year we create a new theme and invite a Creative Ambassador to bring the theme to life through their own vision. This makes every Sydney New Year’s Eve unique.
The theme for 2014 is Inspire - a word that symbolises Sydney. Sydney inspires with its iconic beaches and stunning Sydney Harbour, and vibrant and diverse culture. Sydney inspires people from around the world to visit and explore, and inspires some to create new lives here.
This year’s Creative Ambassador is actor Jack Thompson AM PhD, a legendary figure of Australian cinema.
Under the theme of Inspire, Jack will introduce the many stories ‘inspired by Sydney’ for 2014 Sydney New Year’s Eve. These stories will include some of Jack’s own tales inspired by the city, as well as those of other notable Sydneysiders and lesser-known locals.
Jack’s affinity with the city he grew up in, combined with his reputation as one of this country’s most accomplished storytellers, makes him an inspired choice to bring the 2014 Sydney New Year’s Eve theme to life.
Whether you join the approximately 1.5 million visitors on the Sydney Harbour Foreshore or the millions watching the fireworks on TV around the globe, join us as we welcome in the New Year with our world-famous fireworks display on the sparkling Sydney Harbour.
