Perched at the top of the South Island, Picton opened its celebrations to out-of-towners. Revellers were bussed in from nearby Blenheim to ring in the New Year at Picton Harbour, with a flash of lights and explosions in the sky.
Meanwhile further south in Dunedin, the year was kicked off with a single cannon shot at midnight, thrilling crowds gathered at the Octagon.
