The new decade has been welcomed in style with a spectacular fireworks show over Auckland city.

This year's New Year's display saw half a tonne of fireworks set off from the Sky Tower, co-ordinated to music and with lightshows across other Auckland buildings.

It took almost a year of planning, with a team of 12 spending the past week assembling the display atop the landmark.

Bright numbers projected on the side of the Sky Tower counted down the seconds, before 2020 was welcomed with a bang.

The dazzling display lasted for just over five minutes .
