Revellers in Melbourne, Canberra and Darwin may also have to brave wet weather as they welcome 2007, with the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) predicting storms in all three cities.
But partygoers farewelling 2006 in Brisbane, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth can expect sunny skies.
Despite predictions of possible thunderstorms, huge crowds are expected to line Sydney Harbour's foreshore for the $4 million celebrations dubbed a Diamond Night in the Emerald City.
Two hundred tonnes of equipment will be used to launch pyrotechnics with 3,000kg of explosive content.
Sydney's fireworks display, dubbed the biggest in the world by organisers, will get underway with the first colourful explosion from the Fort Denison cannon at 1pm (AEDT) on Sunday.
Every hour on the hour entertainment will follow, including flyovers by Tiger Moths and an indigenous smoking ceremony, a ritual of purification and unity.
A family show at 9pm (AEDT) is themed on the children's classic The Wizard of Oz.
And at midnight, the bridge will feature the largest ever illuminated icons - expected to be a diamond inside a 110 metre wide coathanger, commemorating the Sydney icon's 75th birthday.
Despite forecasts of showers and possible thunderstorms and the mercury tipped to top just 22 degrees Celsius in Sydney, organisers of the New Year's Eve celebrations are not concerned.
International Fireworks director Fortunato Foti says the rain forecast could actually enhance the fireworks display over the harbour.
In Melbourne, Bollywood dance lessons and live bands will be part of official celebrations, with 450,000 expected in the city.
The massive party will also include $145,000 in fireworks displays, masquerade-themed celebrations and free movie screenings.
Melbourne Lord Mayor John So said New Year's Eve would be a chance for people to party after a big year in which the city hosted the Commonwealth Games.
"On New Year's Eve, we will have a party that celebrates the many great achievements of 2006," he said.
Brisbane's South Bank Parklands will be party central on New Year's Eve, with up to 100,000 revellers expected.
As well as the two fireworks spectaculars, launched from barges on the Brisbane River at 9pm and midnight (AEST), there will be fire performers, breakdancers, live bands, a DJ, ferris wheel and movies on the giant screen in Suncorp Piazza.
The Gold Coast has a similar entertainment line-up with fireworks on the hour from 9pm (AEST) until midnight from the beach at Surfers Paradise.
South Australian police will deploy several hundred extra officers at potential trouble spots, including Adelaide's central business district, seaside suburbs Glenelg and Semaphore, and the coastal township of Victor Harbor, south of Adelaide.
The traditional Lord Mayor's New Year's Eve party will be staged outside the Adelaide Town Hall with other large gatherings tipped for the seaside suburbs and Victor Harbor.
In Darwin, thousands of people are expected to converge on the city's wharf precinct, where live entertainment and fireworks displays will be held, accompanied by a large police presence.
In Perth, the main celebrations will be at Northbridge with a free two-stage $100,000 concert expected to attract around 11,000 people.
Eleven hundred police will be on duty in the metropolitan area and 600 more in regional areas.
Police said the hotspots will be Northbridge, Fremantle, Rockingham, south of the city, Cottesloe and Scarborough beaches, where alcohol will be banned, and Rottnest Island off Perth's coast.
And even the nation's normally restrained capital is promising a big night.
Two free outdoor events are being held in Canberra to be complemented by two fireworks displays through the night.
The only potential dampener is forecast rain.
"As desperately as we need the rain we're hoping it buckets down at about 3am. It can rain as much as it likes for as long as it likes after that," organiser Jeremy Lasek said.
