    Wow. How shit was that. So... let's rewind shall we? All the way back to 1990. THAT'S WHAT THEY LOOKED LIKE FFS.

    Nothing but fireworks just going up and popping. Oh hold on... there was something I noticed. The bridge LEDs going off like crazy, but it's not like the Foti's had to pay for that. Fucking fraudstightarses.

    How about that ending though... who would've ever seen a waterfall coming?

    Wait wait... I DID LAST YEAR FFS!!!

    Nah there was definitely some change.

    Far more emphasis on lighting this year (which I think was a smart idea). I'd love to see the entire harbour foreshore rigged up though.. from the headlands to inner harbour.

    Barges were out past Cremorne Point and as far back as Birchgrove. So they listened in that way and it opened the harbour right up. They weren't constantly firing off the bridge, at one point blacking it out completely to let the harbour barges take over. Then the barges stopped and focus went back to bridge. Flow was far better.

    Ending was a little different too.

    One thing I did notice, is the right hand side of the bridge (both the arch and the road level fireworks) were having issues firing. So the effect was lost in parts due to a complete blackout in that spot of the bridge.

    All in all it was better than years gone by (and I love a good ol fashioned NYE fireworks slag off), so I'll give them credit for trying.

    I'm complaining about them rorting me, the taxpayer, via the Government. If I'm funding that damn thing I want it to be different.

    Wasn't there a total fire ban one year and as a result the Fireworks were cancelled?

    The fireworks are paid for by the City of Sydney, so unless you're a ratepayer within the council boundaries, you're likely not paying for them.

    Da faq? Are you sure? No, I'm certain the State Government pays (or at least chips in) for such an international event.
