A Sydney Christmas is like no other in the world – hot, relaxed, social and traditional with a twist.
This year we’re turning our city into a magical summer Christmas playground with a five week season of celebrations, promotions and interactive installations, offering a complete sensory experience for everyone.
The streets will be illuminated with lights and decorations, including a new interactive Christmas tree in Martin Place, a spectacular choral installation incorporating light and sound in Pitt Street Mall, and digital projections on Sydney Town Hall and in Sydney Square.
Our free family-friendly concerts in Martin Place, Hyde Park and the villages will be a hit with the kids and there’ll be plenty of opportunities for photos with Santa.
So come and enjoy the summer sunshine and balmy nights for a bright, fun-filled, festive season.
