We are getting closer to Christmas and it’s beginning to look like it! Christmas in Sydney is an absolutely magical time of the year, and while we may not have snow, our gorgeous city still transforms into a magical wonderland over the holiday period!

During the summer holiday season, Sydney sparkles with everything from a traditional Christmas supper by the harbor to stunning lights and a flurry of carolers. We have compiled a list of some of the top Christmas activities for you and your family to enjoy.

  • Woolworths Carols in the Domain

Sydney’s favorite Carols in the Domain is returning in 2022 to celebrate its 40th year! Mark December 17th in your diaries to celebrate Christmas with the stars at the 40th Woolworths Carols in the Domain. As usual, The Wiggles, the world’s most popular children’s entertainment group, will perform at the Carols, which will be a star-studded event featuring Australia’s finest artists.

  • Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular

Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular, located on the outskirts of Sydney, is well worth the trek up north if you want to enjoy a true Christmas fantasy with your children. From November 4th to January 26th, Hunter Valley Gardens will host the Southern Hemisphere’s largest and most magnificent lighting display, featuring over three million lights.

Sydney is home to many Christmas events and installations.
  • The Ultimate Christmas Market

The Cambridge Markets are visiting Moore Park and will be offering over 120 stalls for families to explore. Parents and kids can shop for gifts, fashion, jewelry, and more, with food also available. Entertainment and activities will also be offered to keep the kids entertained. The Ultimate Christmas Market will be held on December 5th at Moore Park.

  • Canopy of Light and Martin Place Christmas Tree

Enjoy the glittering lights of Pitt Street Mall, which features over 94,000 LED Christmas lights draped in a canopy above the shops. The lights switch on every day after 6pm, and if you’re lucky, carolers will be singing Christmas carols around the area. Alternatively, visit Martin Place to witness Sydney’s stunning Christmas Tree light show. The light show begins at 8 p.m. every night on the hour. This amazing event will take place from November 26th to January 1st.
