Hoping to get some long exposure fireworks shots on Wednesday night and wanted to know where the best spots are. If you've been taking photos there for past NYE fireworks, I'd like to know where you set up and what time, etc..

I was thinking along near Crown Casino?

Cheers :thumbup:

You might have a better chance around docklands. You'd want plenty of wind to blow the smoke away to get some nice clear shots.

It could be cool from one of the bridges along the Yarra.

I believe there are also fireworks being let off from Telstra Dome as part of Sensation White.

Yeah the bridges along the Yarra are sounding good too.

Doubt I'll be able to get down to the Docklands/Telstra Dome area.

Thanks for the suggestions so far :)

Try that old bridge, I think it's the old train bridge. It's the one that's closest to bridge road. The further the better I say.
