However, I did go to Milson's Point at around 5 PM and walked across the bridge. It was quite a sight. Got some photos that give you a sense of the sheer scale of the event.
This was the crowd going into Bradfield Park ... Not surprisingly, the local bottleshop was very popular.
With so many people in such a comparatively small area lots of portaloos were required!
Glad things turned out as they did. There were just so many people there, and I doubt many would have come prepared for a deluge. And I suspect the fireworks themselves could have been severely affected.
Whether you were part of this crowd in Sydney or not, I hope you had a good time last night. Happy New Year to all of you!
