Heya.

Little Day Out is a curated list of fun things to do for kids in Sydney. We save you time by selecting just six weekend activities we think are the best of what's on

Sydney Harbour Port Jackson, Sydney - 9pm family fireworks, 9pm, Free

Sydney Harbour Port Jackson, Sydney - 9pm family fireworks, 9pm, Free

The 9pm family fireworks give spectators with young children the chance to enjoy a fantastic 8 minute display.

The legendary pyro-choreography will be seen as the display adds a sparkle and magic to the Sydney skyline, with rockets firing from 4 barges in the harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The 9pm family fireworks will be synchronised to a soundtrack broadcast live on KIIS FM. 

If you're unable to make it out on NYE there is a live stream option of the celebrations on the official Sydney website page. You can watch from anywhere in the world. You can also live stream from the ABC TV Facebook page and YouTube channel. See the Welcome to Country ceremony at 8.38pm and fireworks at 9pm and midnight. All times are in AEDT. You can watch the event on ABC and iview. The broadcast begins at 8.35pm.
