One in 40 Get Sydney Fireworks Seating

40,000 apply for prime viewing area in Sydney harbour, only 1,150 seats available.

About 40,000 people have applied for a prime spot at one of three harbour venues boasting spectacular views of the New Year's Eve fireworks in Sydney Australia. Unfortunately, there are only 1,150 places.

The New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service tells the Sydney Morning Herald it had not yet fixed a date for the random draw to determine who gets one of the prized seats. New Year's Eve organizers are boasting that the Sydney fireworks and laser show will be the best in the world.

The service had sought advice from the Independent Commission Against Corruption and New South Wales Lotteries to ensure the draw, to take place in the next few weeks, was fair.

Entry to the lottery was free but winners will pay $200 ($120 US) for a spot and be entitled to a maximum of five tickets. The proceeds will help the Australian Paralympic Committee and the wheelchair basketball teams.

Access to the foreshore of Sydney Harbour National Park at Middle Head, Bradleys Head and Nielsen Park will be free. For those with an open wallet, there are several private parties around the harbour with admission prices that are running into the thousands of dollars.
