Model Answer:
Usually, the new year is celebrated amid great festivity in Australia. Many people get out of their homes to witness this grand event and welcome the new year with great expectations and renewed hope. I can remember such a celebration to welcome 2017. I was an undergraduate student at the University of New South Wales in Sydney back then. Thank you for this nice topic, and I will describe the event now.

Since we were supposed to graduate from the university before 2018, we thought it was our last chance to enjoy the new year celebration as classmates in Australia. We knew many of us would return to our homeland and perhaps never meet each other again. So we planned to make the new year celebration of 2017 something special. We did enjoy this event as much as we could. We did not make any plan as we were too excited to celebrate it. However, we planned that we will do things together and stay out till late.

As I recall we were 8 persons altogether from our class. All of us were there to celebrate the event. Stephen, Chan, Morrison, Rahul, Gomez, Nima and Emma were with me that day to celebrate this exceptionally enjoyable event.  

We gathered at a place near the Sydney Opera House before 7:00 pm. We ate our lunch at a nearby restaurant at around 8:00 pm, exchanged some gifts with our classmates and friends, sang some songs and even danced like some bohemian people. We counted down together till the clock hit 12:00, and after it was officially 2017, we shouted aloud to welcome the new year. The surrounding atmosphere was stunning and everybody was enjoying and shouting. We also arranged for some fireworks. The display of the fireworks was outstanding and it attracted a remarkable number of people to enjoy it with us. We stayed out till 3:00 in the morning and then returned to our houses.
