Sydney certainly knows how to set off a cracker, and those wishing the New Year in around the Harbour certainly weren’t disappointed with the celebrations. Costing $5 million AUD, the pyrotechnic extravaganza is expected to earn the city approximately $40 million in revenue through publicity and the like.

Here are some of the photos of Sydney as it welcomed 2009.

So from The Marquette Turner team in Sydney to wherever you are, we wish you peace, happiness and health in 2009.

“Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.” Benjamin Franklin
