New Year’s Eve 2018: Australia welcomes in the New Year

Damp Sydneysiders and tourists have celebrated the new year under golden, lime and silver skies lit by the city's world-famous New Year's Eve fireworks spectacular.

An early thunderstorm and late scattered showers threatened to mute festivities but hundreds of thousands of buoyant revellers kept spirits high for the record-breaking midnight show.

Under the banner of "the pulse of Sydney", the Harbour Bridge again played centrepiece as 6000 fireworks and other features were fired from it during the 12-minute program.

This year's $5.78 million firework show in Sydney includes more than 100,000 individual pyrotechnics, 8.5 tonnes of fireworks and 35,000 shooting comets. (AAP)

More than 8.5 tonnes of fireworks were set off over the harbour, including 35,000 shooting comets and new designs that allowed gold palms to change colour mid-explosion.

Lime and peach were two unusual colours used while silver won out over gold for the famed waterfall effect off the bridge floor.
