Pop starlet Kylie Minogue says Sydney's celebration to welcome in 2013 was a highlight of her life and proved the city's reputation as the New Years Eve capital of the world.

An estimated 1.6 million people viewed the fireworks around the harbour in a show that paid homage to the diminutive singer, whose hit tunes from her 25 years in show business featured in the soundtrack.

Her red lips in lights on the Sydney Harbour Bridge puckered up at midnight to deliver a kiss to welcome in the new year.

"The atmosphere was electric and it was a night I will never forget," Minogue said in a statement on Tuesday.

"Sydney has the reputation as the New Years Eve capital of the world and it certainly lived up to that promise last night."

Minogue said it was the "best feeling in the world to be on the world's greatest harbour" surrounded by family, friends and the 1.6 million people gathered on the foreshore.

"My New Year resolution is to spend more time with my family and loved ones, and more time in Australia," she said.

Sydney New Years Eve producer Aneurin Coffey said he spoke to Minogue last night and she had said she was "absolutely over the moon, one of the best experiences of her life".
