PNG trio enjoy Sydney Harbour fireworks

Best friends and university mates Katherine Epikana, Novelane Popo and Anna Naime welcomed the New Year away from home under the famous Sydney fireworks display.

Like a lot of people, this was a dream come true for the trio who always wanted to be part of the Sydney fireworks.

They said despite standing in the que for up to five hours, it was worth it to witness the fireworks live at Macquarie's Point, Sydney Harbour.

“We are glad to have planned this trip and to be part of this event that has always been televised live to countries around the world including PNG.

“We finally accomplished what we planned for our journey to see the fireworks in Sydney despite the sun, the heat and the long ques of millions of people including tourists from all over the world.

“We were so excited and screaming the whole time as the feeling was awesome, very different from watching it on television and we hope to do it again sometime,” they said.

The women are currently spending their festive holiday in Sydney.
