Taronga-Miranda after NYE

I'm tempted to go to Taronga Zoo for NYE this year. Does anyone have experience driving back to the southern suburbs after the fireworks? Would the roads be fairly quick, or a traffic jam? It is Military Rd and the tunnel I'm worried about.

Military Rd is a car park from Spit Junction all the way to the Bridge until after 2 am.

I would be tempted to use the ferry and a train from Circular Quay, changing at Town Hall or Central. Yes, the trains and stations will be crowded, but by the time you leave the zoo and catch the ferry, large amounts of the crowds around CQ will have dispersed. You could of course walk up to Martin Place for the Illawarra line train too.

I did this from Cremorne Point a few years ago and the crowds were tolerable. They have very well organised crowd control to keep everyone safe at CQ station.
