Be one of the first ones to ring in the new year in Auckland! Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand and therefore, there are loads of events during New Year's Eve. You, for example, have Wondergarden at Silo Park, an inner-city event with plenty of live music performances, family-friendly entertainment, street food, and lighting installations. Then there's also plenty of events in Ponsonby and around the waterfront.And what is better than doing all of this with warm weather?! With summer going on during New Year's Eve on the Southern Hemisphere, it's even better to celebrate because you can party outside and have longer daylight hours.Whatever event you decide to go to during New Year's Eve, make sure that you are watching the fireworks at the Sky Tower at midnight! The fireworks display from this tower is the first of the big fireworks displays around the globe.The best places to watch the fireworks are around the waterfront, from Devonport, Mount Victoria, Albert Park CBD or the bridge at Birkenhead. Generally, just anywhere where you have a good view of the Sky Tower will do! Make sure you be there pretty early to claim a good spot and then enjoy the spectacle!
