A GLITTERING night planned by pop princess Kylie Minogue will lead New Year's Eve celebrations throughout Australia.

And the famous Sydney fireworks that are shown around the world are promising not to disappoint.

As creative ambassador for Sydney's event, Minogue developed the event's theme "embrace" and chose its colour scheme and soundtrack.

"I love the concept of embrace - it can mean so many different things, and I'm looking forward to embracing new possibilities for the next year," Minogue told reporters.

She will be honoured with a one-of-a-kind sparkling musical-note firework.

The semiquaver will be one of 100,000 individual pyrotechnic creations this year, including brand-new koala, octopus and hand images up in lights.

"What we aim to do (each year) is to make it the best one - for people to go away and say 'that was the best display I've ever seen'," fireworks director Fortunato Foti said.

For those cities that don't have Kylie, there will still be celebrations with families, friends, champagne and fireworks.

Most capital cities are hosting two lots of fireworks - one around 9pm for families and another at midnight.

Melbourne's skyline will be lit up like never before as New Year's Eve fireworks are launched from building tops across the city.

The City of Melbourne is expecting more than half a million people to flock to the city to welcome in 2013, with three official live sites featuring entertainment at Flagstaff Gardens, Treasury Gardens and Docklands.

At midnight, fireworks will be launched from 22 sites across the city - 18 from buildings.

"So the message is, if you can see the city skyline, then you will see the fireworks on New Year's Eve," Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said.

Fireworks will light up Brisbane's CBD with Southbank Parklands the place to be.

On the Gold Coast, organisers of the Surfers Paradise New Year's Eve celebrations are hoping a superhero theme will bring a more family-friendly crowd.

Children are being invited to dress up as their favourite superhero before attending one of the biggest fireworks shows in the state, with more than 10,000 fireworks to be released from Surfers Paradise beach.

Adelaide is also going for family-friendly events with thousands expected to gather at the venues - Elder Park in the city and at seaside Glenelg.

Organisers will keep drinkers separate from other partygoers at Elder Park.

A heatwave in Perth is likely to continue with 40C forecast for New Year's Eve before dropping to 36C on New Year's Day.

However, that's not expected to keep people away from the festivities.

Events include the City of Perth's free outdoor New Year's Eve Northbridge party.

And Hobart will get a chance to show off its newfound hipness to thousands in town for the Sydney to Hobart yacht race and Tasmania's biggest event, The Taste Festival near Salamanca Place.

Proving Tasmania is the world's new avant-garde capital, American rockers The Flaming Lips will give up their annual Freakout New Year's Eve gig in the US to bring in 2013 at The Falls Festival east of Hobart.

And to prove it's not too cool, there will be fireworks.

Big Deal a few fireworks is nothing for the New Year! :oops: They could not even compare to our 4th of July fireworks like in New York City, or Washington DC, or even Disneylands.

I'll bet more people in your country will turn on the Television for the Rose Parade in Pasadena, than go to your own fireworks show. 1/2 million is a drop in the bucket compared to our Rose Parade, where 2,000,000 line the 5 mile parade route, and probably 100,000,000 will watch in on Television just in the USA. Over a Billion will watch it worldwide. Probably 4 times your entire population, will watch the Rose Bowl Game that afternoon, just n the USA.

Your such a nationalist & so Anti Australian Greeney2.

Where does this xenophobia & hatred of anything that's not American come from.

The what .... the rose parade .... (( never heard of it & iv never seen it on Australian television ever ))

This is what im talking about ( your delusions of grandeur ) the fact that you think Australia would have this rose parade on Australian Television. (( why ))

Here is a question for you.

In around 5 hours, Australia will be the first major economy to celebrate the arrival of the new year & 2013.

Then Asia will celebrate the arrival of 2013.

Then Africa will celebrate the arrival of 2013.

Then in around 15 hours from now Europe will celebrate the arrival of 2013..

By this time Australia's will be well drunk, & hung over ( having already done many firsts for 2013 ) first drink, first BBQ, First fight, first breakup, first shag for 2013.

& as Australia enters it's 2nd day of 2013 ..... the USA & Canada will just be leaving 2012 & entering 2013 with the rest of the world.

Now why on earth do you think that While Australia wakes up after a public holiday on January 2 2013 that we would be even slightly interested in what the USA & Canada, & Mexico are doing back in 2012.

Australia television will be replaying the party's from around Australia over & over again, reporting on the clean ups & fights from the new year celebrations & the drunk party goers pick them selves up from the gutters/parks & beaches from around Australia & the pacific & Asia. ( keeping in mind Australia is only one 1.5 to 4 hours away from Thailand ( full moon party & new years party ) Bali & Singapore, Vietnam ... ect ect

& just 4 - 6 hours away from Fiji, New Zealand, Tahiti ... ect ect.

Now what on earth makes you think that Australian's sit around watching this ... ( let me check what you called it again )

This rose parade ..... instead of partying our butts of in & around Australia & Asia / the Pacific.

By the time The USA welcomes in the new year Australian's are well & truly over it.

Do you really think that instead of partying our butts of we would rather wait 2 days to watch the USA be the last nation in the world to see in the new year. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


What ever you to choose to believe mate.

& happy new year. :thumbup:
