Sky Tower will again mark the beginning of a new year with a fireworks display at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve.

SkyCity has put on a fireworks display from the top of the tower for more than 15 years and this year has introduced a new addition to mark the start of 2014.

A giant LED light display at the top of the tower's stem will feature a digital countdown to midnight and a New Year's message from SkyCity.

At the stroke of midnight there will be five minutes of pyrotechnics launched from level 61 of the tower.
