Anyone looking for a special way to ring in the new year this time around may wish to book flights to Sydney before the annual plans of the festivities are unveiled.This is according to What’s on When, which recommends the city’s annual celebrations as among the most spectacular in the world.

“Activity focuses around a glittering Darling Harbour and the majestic Harbour Bridge, the backdrop for some of the most breathtaking fireworks you’ll ever see,” the website enthuses.

Traditionally, the night begins with a small fireworks display and a parade involving 50 boats at 21:00 local time.

Then, the midnight fireworks begin at midnight and last for a spectacular 12 minutes, one for every month of the New Year.

Sydney’s lord mayor Clover Moore is expected to unveil the plan for 2008-09 in the coming days, but has hinted on the city’s website that it will be a spectacular celebration shared, as usual, by millions.
