This event marked the third year in a row the ABC provided the official coverage. The network's broadcast was panned by viewers, described as "pathetic" and "cringe-worthy", and the worst coverage of the former years the ABC has held the broadcast rights. Ratings were comparable with the previous year for the midnight fireworks, however the 9pm family fireworks were down around 18 percent.

The 9PM fireworks featured new flora and fauna effects as tribute to 200th year of Sydney Royal Botanical Garden and 100 years of Taronga Zoo. It featured the multi-coloured waterfall from the bridge.
