SYDNEY, Jan.1 -- New Year’s Eve in Sydney was lightened by the spectacular and colorful fireworks on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and barges on the water.

Around 1.6 million people crammed into every available vantage point around the harbour to enjoy Sydney’s world-famous fireworks displays, celebrating the coming of 2015.

A pyrotechnic crew of 45 launched seven tonnes of fireworks throughout the night – including 11,000 shells, 25,000 shooting comets and over 100,000 individual effect. The whole celebration cost $7.2 million.

The midnight fireworks filled the night sky with 12-minute sparks. At the end, the bridge blazed with the red outline of a 12-storey high lightbulb, capturing this year's theme of "inspiration".
