Christmas Lights In Sydney

There are so many amazing Christmas light displays Sydney wide but the most spectacular Christmas lights in Sydney are located in the Sydney CBD.

It is a definite highlight of the Christmas season to visit the city to view all the stunning Christmas lights. My family’s favourite is the Martin Place Christmas lights display which transforms Martin Place into a magical, twinkling Christmas wonderland. They are a definite Sydney Christmas lights must-see.

Head over to our article Where To See The Best Christmas Lights In The Sydney CBD for more details about the Martin Place lights and other must see Sydney Christmas lights.

Christmas Markets In Sydney 2022

The Rocks Christmas Markets Sydney

Sydney Christmas Markets are fabulous places to start your Christmas gift shopping where you can find unique artisanal Christmas gifts and meet the creative makers of your gifts.

Shopping at Christmas markets Sydney wide is a great way to support local businesses, a lot of whom have been doing it tough over the last couple of years.

Christmas markets are also a fun place to wander around, soak up the festive spirit, admire the twinkling Christmas lights adorning all the stalls and indulge in some delicious Christmas fare. Kids will love Christmas markets’ festive themed entertainment and appearances by Santa.

Visiting Christmas markets is a favourite festive season activity of my family and we have dedicated a whole separate article to the Best Sydney Christmas Markets 2022.

Christmas Carols In Sydney 2022

Carols In The Domain, Sydney

Attending a Sydney Christmas Carols concert is a much cherished festive tradition of many Sydneysiders.

Sydney’s warm December weather is perfect for relaxing outdoors on a picnic rug, enjoying kid-friendly pre-carol entertainment like face painting and rides, sharing a delicious picnic with family and friends, watching the sun go down and then joyously singing Christmas carols together with thousands of people around us as well as the performers on stage. The festive spirit at Christmas carols events is amazing. Kids will love seeing Santa put in an appearance at carols events too.

Whether you are looking to attend the biggest carols concert in Sydney, Carols In The Domain, or whether you are looking for a smaller Carols By Candlelight Sydney event near you we’ve covered them all in our comprehensive Ultimate Guide To Christmas Carols Sydney 2022 article.

Christmas High Tea Sydney

Christmas is a time for special indulgences and one of the best Christmas indulgences is to enjoy a luxurious Christmas high tea.

Sip on a cup of soothing tea or enjoy a glass of champagne while savouring exquisite Christmas themed sweet and savoury treats served on a spectacular tiered tower.
