We were fortunate enough to be invited onto a cruise boat on Sydney Harbour last night for New Years Eve and it was a wonderful night.
This is the sister boat of the one we were on and the food was great too. This is the seafood starter.
The cruise started before sunset so, although cloudy and a bit overcast, no rain fell and the winds dropped to give us a spectacular evening. Crowds started to gather on the Harbour edges very early in the day.
The Harbour Bridge - celebrating its 75th birthday - is always a focal point for the evening with the Sydney Opera House as a perfect backdrop - or is it the other way around?
We travelled round and round the Harbour all evening. The smiling face belongs to Luna Park - another Sydney Icon.
Of course the Fireworks topped off a perfect evening.
