 All over the world preparations are being made to welcome in the New Year.
In Brisbane - "the River City" as the publicity goes - crowds will gather along the river for the fireworks display like the ones below from a previous year.
We won't be there though we have been in the past.

 We'll be watching them from our front porch.
They'll be tiny from there but enough for us and hopefully without the sound which frightens Dash.
In Sydney, where the fireworks display is epic people have been camping out already to secure a spot with a good view of the harbour bridge
and places like Shark Island below have been sold out for ages to tours and individuals ready to make it a memorable night.

The weather looks good so we're in for a wonderful show.
New South Wales is on Daylight Saving Time so they will celebrate the beginning of the New Year an hour before it really happens ! Duh!
In Queensland (no Daylight Saving Time) 2013 will begin on time and not a minute before !
Happy New Year Everyone!



  1. Happy New Year Helen. I'm not sure whether we will be in Brisbane or up on the Coast tonight, but wherever we are we will be watching fireworks and welcoming in the new year.

  2. Happy New Year! Enjoy the fireworks. We may have snow for New Year's Eve!

  3. Happy New Year! Wishing you and your family all the best for 2013.

  4. Happy New Year Helen. You have a big 2013 coming up with your trip. Best wishes for that and everything else you have planned for the brand new year.

    Mr. P and I are about to head out for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Then I hear Adelaide is putting on some fireworks for us so we'll head out to see those.

  5. Wishing you a wonderful 2013 and repaired aircon very soon!
