The fireworks of Sydney New Year Eve 2016 will reflect the soundtrack, and that "spectacular" fireworks will shower from the harbour bridge, rain from barges and will explode in a "space odyssey" above the city.

More than 1000 extra trains and 3500 extra buses will run making public transport the best way to get around on the night.

Ferries will stop running from 5.35pm and will restart at 1am but revellers are advised to have a back-up train or bus travel plan.
