Party in Sydney on New Years Eve with the official app!


Telstra and the City of Sydney council have launched an official Sydney New Years Eve app for Android and iOS devices.

The app is an update to the original 2012 version (that’s last year, for those of you counting), and offers much the same in terms of features. Of course, they’ve been refreshed for this year’s celebrations!

Some of the app’s features include:

  • Share latest into on the celebrations via Telstra Timeline
  • Telstra VIP Competition – Share content once registered to go into the draw to win VIP backstage passes
  • Option to find hot spots via interactive maps to watch the fireworks at 9pm and Midnight
  • Preload up to 50 free text message which Telstra will send on your behalf on the night
  • Telstra Messages on the Bridge – create a message and post it to have it displayed up on the Harbour Bridge

If you had the 2012 version of the app installed already, it should automatically update. If not, you can a href=”″>download it from Google Play.

If you’ve found similar apps for other cities around Australia, send us a tip!

Did you use the app in 2012? Would you download it again for 2013? Let us know in the comments!

Sure yes he was a fanboy for another technology company *cough* Apple *cough* but he has seen the error of his ways and is now very much an Android and Chrome related fanboy!

    But will it replicate the sight, sounds and yes, smells of Sydney NYE?

      Well note sure about the smells (really would you want to??). Not sure if they will have video content, but could be a possibility (as last year they sent you to a dedicated youtube channel)
