Fireworks explode near the Harbor Bridge and the Opera House during New Year's Eve celebrations in Sydney, Australia, on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013.

CANBERRA, Australia — Exploding fireworks sprayed from Sydney's iconic opera house and harbor bridge at midnight Tuesday as the world began ushering in a new year.

More than 1 million people crammed the Sydney Harbor foreshore on a warm summer night to watch Sydney's renowned annual pyrotechnics show, which appeared to live up to its billing as the city's most extravagant. Fireworks launched from four sails of the Sydney Opera House for the first time in more than a decade.

Dubai will later try to create the world's largest fireworks show to ring in 2014.

Closer to the edge of the International Dateline, New Zealand bid farewell to 2013 two hours before Sydney with fireworks erupting from Auckland's Sky Tower as cheering revelers danced in the streets of the South Pacific island nation's largest city.
