heading for Sydney NYE'09 fireworks?

NYE 07 midnight fireworks

Heading out for tomorrow night's Sydney fireworks? This is the website you should check in advance. Remember, there will be bag check, which means no glass (no glass bottles, no glass drinkware).

If you want the best vantage point for photos, you will have to be there early, from the morning I meant. Lots of the roads will be closed, which means you will have to rely on public transport.

Of course, if you are a VIP (like Don), you don't need to sit under the scorching sun for 10+ hours outside to secure the spot in not-so comfy rock or ground. You can simple buy a ticket for the "best seat". Here are some ticketed locations:
Lawn with The View (at Bennelong Lawn, Royal Botanic Gardens) would set you back $190.00 per person plus booking fee (this one is sold out). (includes a gourmet picnic hamper)
Midnight at the Oasis (at Fleet Steps, Royal Botanic Gardens, that's right next to the Macquires Point) would set you back $290.00 per person plus booking fee (limited to 1,100 tickets). (includes three course meal, DJs, reserved table seating and a dance floor)
Feel like to spend your NYE with some animals?
Taronga Zoo (Gold Reserve Tickets) for just $250 per adult or $150 for child plus booking fee. (includes live music and entertainment, but bring your own food)
Taronga Zoo (Silver Reserve Tickets)* for just $150 per adult or $90 for child plus booking fee. (includes live music and entertainment, but bring your own food)
Please note that the silver reserve tickets entitle you to obstructed views.

And for the lazy ones who don't feel like to join the excitement: Switch your TV to Channel 9 from 11:40pm for the New Year's Eve coverage. (Estimated to end at 0:10am).

As for us, we are not planning on going there this year.

I forgot to say that if Don was in Sydney for NYE, he must have chosen the most expensive option for the celebration.

For the record, I always watch the festivities on TV. And not a huge LCD HDTV like yours, but only on the standard-def set that we have here.

Because you did not know that you can reserve a VIP seat?
