2 posts in this topic

Sydney New Year's Eve revealed on the 6th of December that Luna Park Sydney's Ferris Wheel will feature as part of the event for the 1st time.

Like with Vivid Sydney, they are making the most of the lighting upgrade to The Ferris Wheel.

From the Sydney New Year's Eve media release:


Old welcome heralds New Year of recognition

Sydney's iconic New Year's Eve celebrations will see an age-old Aboriginal tradition of Calling Country that will welcome the International Year of Indigenous languages in 2019.

Calling Country is a ritual that will welcome all to Gadigal land. The ceremony will feature a series of animated projections, including water, birds, fish and plants beamed onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge pylons.

The dynamic display will end with the words 'welcome' and 'always will be' in Gadigal language.

The five-minute display starts at 9.08pm on New Year's Eve. The Sydney Harbour Bridge, harbour of light parade vessels and Luna Park's ferris wheel will for the first time be lit up in red as part of the Calling Country ceremony.

Calling Country will also be part of the live ABC New Year's Eve broadcast and outdoor concert at the Sydney Opera House, with a Welcome in language by Joel Davison accompanied by a musical performance led by Ngiyampaa man Eric Avery.

It seems Luna Park Sydney's Ferris Wheel won't be restricted to just the Calling Country ceremony. It seems it will play a part in all elements of Sydney New Year's Eve (such as the fireworks) today.

From today's Sydney New Year's Eve media release:


This New Year's Eve, the Luna Park ferris wheel will also be part of the show, with a co-ordinated lighting displays.
