Spectacular display to see in the new year

There was bumper-to-bumper traffic at Warrnambool’s breakwater as people flooded to the area to get the best vantage point to see in the new year.

Warrnambool photographer Perry Cho captured some spectacular shots at both the 9.30pm fireworks and midnight display.

The Standard photographer Christine Ansorge got a different view of the 9.30pm fireworks from her vantage point in the security boat in Lady Bay.
