New Zealand celebrates New Year with fireworks

New Zealand’s major cities greeted the New Year with fireworks.

As the most populated city in New Zealand, Auckland always puts on a good show and the Sky Tower display was spectacular as half a ton of fireworks burst from the landmark towering over the city centre. The Tower has been adorned with colourful animated laser displays of geometric shapes and animals including a green gecko which appeared to be climbing down the 328m tall tower.

The country is one of the first nations in the world to welcome 2021.
