The end of another year… a time of reflections and conclusions, endings and resolutions. But the end of the year in Sydney is all about beginnings. As all eyes around the globe anxiously await the world’s first and most dazzling display of fireworks, the Sydney Harbour erupts in a sparkling array of colors. The start of summer brings the surfers, the picnics, the outdoor artsy happenings back to life. Summer in Sydney shines like an exuberant carnival of endless festivals, sporting events, and outdoor attractions.
