Sekond pace is for Chatham Islands- New Zealand.
If you thought that the first place is for Australia, you'll be surprised to hear it is on the fifth. Take a look at the Fireworks in Sydney.
After travelling all around the world, the New Year will eventually come full circle – or near enough.The last place or places to receive 2017 will be the tiny outlying islands of the US. Baker Island and Howland Island will greet the New Year at 12 Midday on January 1 – or at least they would if any people lived there.
