Here comes 2013! Sydney is first major world city to celebrate as New Year

Here comes 2013! Sydney is first major world city to celebrate as New Year spreads across the globe

The first major celebration of 2013 has taken place with an extravagant and expensive firework display lighting up the skyline over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.

An incredible 7 tons of fireworks were fired into the night-sky as Australia's capital welcomed in the New Year with style.

Elsewhere, extravagant displays lit up Hong Kong and Beijing while the increasingly democratic Myanmar - also known as Burma - joined the party for the first time in almost five decades.
