Looking for an alternative to the bustling crowds at the Sydney Harbour Bridge fireworks? Coogee Beach, in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs will be hosting a spectacular fireworks display on New Year’s Eve.
Starting at the family-friendly time of 9.00 pm, “Coogee Sparkles”, as it has been dubbed this year, will fill up the night sky with a spectacle of colour and movement.
Every year, attendance has been growing with locals and visitors lining up the promenade along Coogee Beach on the last night of the year. There are many vantage points from which to see the fireworks. If you’d like to secure a picnic spot on the surrounding parks, arrive a little early. Otherwise, pick a romantic spot on the sand to farewell 2011.
Update: Photos and a brief video of the 2011 Coogee Beach Fireworks are available on Gourmantic.
