While the New Year is still several hours away for people in many parts of the world, those in New Zealand, the island nation of Samoa, and Australia have heralded 2019 with the right degree of pomp!
While New Zealand welcomed the New Year at about 11am West African Time, Samoa did about an hour earlier. This was followed suit by Australia at 2.00pm West African Time.
Stunning firework displays welcomed the New Year in New Zealand, as Auckland’s Sky Tower put on a huge show.
Those celebrating the New Year also gathered at Wondergarden Festival, at Silo Park, NZ.
For the Samoans, 2019 was greeted with a huge party to kick off the new year.
The same was the case in Sydney, capital of New South Wales and one of Australia’s largest cities.
