RUSSIA: People take pictures as fireworks light up the Kremlin, during New Year celebrations in Moscow.

"As far as I am aware, this is the first time the chamber has ever had fireworks on New Year's Eve", Chamber Executive Director Tonya Keesee said.

It was predicted more than a billion television viewers would watch the spectacle, into which more than 5,000 hours of preparation were invested.

Close to 10,000 people are expected downtown for the New Year's celebrations Sunday night, despite the bitter cold.

"We're ready for it", Davis said.

An estimated one billion people around the world tuned in to watch the Sydney harbour fireworks.

Revellers across the country can expect a heightened police presence, with thousands of extra officers on duty in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

"The City will continue to monitor weather conditions and make further adjustments, if necessary".

While iView will remain geoblocked during the broadcast, if you're overseas and hankering for some antipodean New Year's action, the ABC advises that its YouTube, Facebook and Periscope coverage will be available globally.

Police said they will be out in force across the state and will be targeting anti-social behaviour off the back of two reports of sexual assault at Falls Festival at Marion Bay.

"We had those bollards in place a year ago and again what happened last week it's just reinforced the need for us to strengthen the area where most people congregate", Mr Crisp said.

An earlier display was held for families wanting to ring in the New Year early. Police have mobilized more armed officers and sniffer dogs than a year ago. "The city is looking at a number of warming stations at the park".
