Sydney will kick off a wave of dazzling firework displays welcoming in 2013 from Dubai to Moscow and London, with long-isolated Yangon joining the global pyrotechnics for the first time.

Australia's famous harbour city will usher in the New Year with a  6.9 million dollar display curated by pop icon Kylie Minogue who designed the colour scheme and soundtrack.

Major fireworks will light up the Thames in London, Moscow's Red Square and Kremlin and Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour, as well as central Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Stockholm, Amsterdam and cities across China.

Revellers in New York will celebrate the stroke of midnight with the traditional New Year's Eve ball drop over Times Square.
