Australians have awoken to their first day of 2022 with some nursing sore heads and looking a little worse for wear following a night of wild celebrations to usher in the New Year.
Tens of thousands of revellers were undeterred by rapidly rising Omicron case numbers as they staged wild celebrations across the country with some of the biggest crowds forming in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
In Sydney, organisers were determined to hold the biggest NYE display seen anywhere since the pandemic began, with six tonnes of fireworks deployed - around 2,000 individual fireworks - for a midnight celebration watched by millions worldwide.
Revellers across the nation continued the celebration well into the early hours of the morning with partygoers slowly migrating to Bondi Beach and Surfer's Paradise on the Gold Coast to watch the sun rise on Saturday.
Crowds slowly began to grow as the weather warmed up and provided the perfect swimming conditions for beachgoers. Hundreds of other residents have chosen to queue at drive-thru Covid-19 clinics as cases continue to surge with NSW breaking another pandemic record and reporting 22,577 new infections.
