2009 opened with a bang for me. Definitely the best light show in Sydney in a long while and by pure miracle we managed to get a decent spot in Milsons Point without having to camp for the entire day. I remembered in previous years the fireworks were concentrated on a single location so unless you have a good view of the harbour or the bridge, you ended up on missing on half of the action. For some reason they managed to get the right combination of different locations and variety of fireworks to make the 12 minutes simply amazing. Add the no cloud factor and a smooth running bus and train system it was a great night all around.
