Treat yourself to exclusive views of the 9pm Family fireworks, the stunning Bridge Effect and Midnight Displays from aboard the Southern Swan tall ship, which is part of the Harbour of Light Parade. The Southern Swan is a magnificent traditional square rigger tall ship built in the style of the 1850s.
At the stroke of midnight, fireworks light up Sydney Harbour and you will enjoy a wonderful display from the deck of your tall ship. Watch in awe as both massive and intricate fireworks displays are set off from barges, rooftops up and down both sides of the harbour and the stunning Sydney Harbour Bridge.
