NYE 2009 Sydney


In retrospect, our original plan was insane.

For some reason, we thought we would be able to claim one of the prime viewing spots for the NYE fireworks over Sydney Harbor.

So off we went to Macquarie Point with the idea we’d be able to just stroll in. When we arrived, we found people had been lining up for the limited access site since 6 AM.

Needless to say, we needed to come up with a Plan B.


For most of the day Plan B didn’t materialize. But late in the afternoon we talked to a local who tipped us off to a small beach with a good view of the Harbor Bridge.

This same local thought we were crazy to even try to get a spot near the Opera House earlier in the day.

She said: What were you thinking? Did you really want to be in the middle of 1.5 million drunken Australians?  …You know how we are.”
