Christmas in Sydney is one of my favourite things to enjoy.
And seeing as Christmas is my favourite time of the year, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite Christmas activities to do around Sydney this year. Tried and tested by me.
I’ve always loved Christmas, and although it’s always so hot here in Sydney (most of the time) during the holiday period, that doesn’t mean us Aussies don’t know how to put on an amazing Christmas display of festivities.
Here are 5 of my favourite activities do in Sydney during the Festive Season.
Santa Land: is a brand new event being hosted in Sydney this year and promises to be pretty spectacular. Wander through the enchanted Alpine forest in search of Santa and take a toboggan ride through the snow.
Where and when: The Entertainment Quarter, 122 Lang Road, Moore Park. Everyday from 7-24th December 2016, 10am to 9pm.
The lights of Christmas: is when the famous St Mary’s Cathedral on College Street becomes the centrepiece of a spectacular Christmas display. The theme this year is ‘Joy to the World.’ This will feature some old world classics, like: The Nutcracker, which is projected through an amazing light show onto the building of the Cathedral.
Where and when: College Street, Sydney from 8-25th December 2016 8.30pm to Midnight.
Lego Christmas Sleigh: is a giant Santa sleigh (reindeer and elves included) which has been made entirely of Lego. And the best part is, it’s life size, which means you get to sit in the Lego Sleigh for an amazing and unique photo opportunity.
Where and when: Martin Place, next to the Christmas tree. From 15-26th December 2016. Thursday to Friday 5pm to 9pm, Saturdays 4pm to 9pm and Sundays 12pm to 4pm.
The Rocks Very Merry Markets: is the perfect location to shop for all of your last minute Christmas presents as the markets will be trading after hours every Friday from no until Christmas. Enjoy browsing through seasonal styles, gourmet goodies and stunning homemade gifts.
Where and when: 15 Argyle Street, The Rocks. Every Friday from 2-23rd December 2016, 4pm to 8pm.
The Sydney Santa Spectacular: is held every year at the Rosehill Racecourse and truly is a spectacular events for both young and old who love this time of year. Enter Santa’s wonderland and explore the magic of the North Pole in lights. Or maybe take an ice skate along the frozen lake.
Where and when: Rosehill Racecourse, Rosehill. Every day except for Wednesdays and Christmas Day. But be quick as tickets are selling fast (all ticket purchased also include free parking).
