LOOK: New Zealand & Australia Welcome YEAR 2015

They’re the most watched New Year’s Eve celebrations in the world.

Sydney takes pride in being one of the first major cities in the world to welcome each new year, and has marked 2015 in its trademark glittery fashion; a tropical-style fireworks display featuring shimmering gold and silver palm tree pyrotechnic effects.

Sydney’s fireworks are the most popular New Year’s Eve celebrations in the world: 2.3 million watched on TV in Australia last year and more than a billion viewers tuned in worldwide.

Australians are celebrating the end of 2014 and getting ready for the beginning of the new year around the country.

More than 1 million people are celebrating in Sydney Harbour, while tens of thousand.
