Just two days into 2020, a Sydney man has begun camping out to guarantee a top spot for next year’s NYE fireworks display.

“I’m fully committed to this,” says Winston McLatchey. “It’s going to be a long 12 months out here, but it’s worth it.”

The 31 year old says next year will be the first time he’ll have a decent view.

“Either way, it suits me to camp out,” he says. “Especially with Sydney property prices they way they are, I’m saving 12 months of rent.”

Mr McLatchey says he has a few friends who have agreed to help mind the space from time to time over the next year.

“We just need to make sure someone is here at all times. Thank god for Deliveroo.”
