A breathtaking light parade in Sydney Harbour? Check. Spectacular fireworks? Check. More than a million people gathered to be among the first to usher in the New Year? Double check. For an unforgettable front row seat to the fireworks, grab tickets for one of the city's best events with a view — we suggest the Royal Botanic Gardens or the La Bohème gala at the Opera House, but those aren’t your only options.
