Best Family-Friendly Christmas Events in Sydney 2022

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.

Final Boarding Call For December

Omicron classified as a ‘super mild’ variant

With weeks to go for Christmas and the New Year, travellers and families are scrambling to secure last minute tickets to be with their loved ones and explore the wonders of India.

This is not the time to ‘umm’ and ‘aah’. This is the time to grab these seats before someone else does. We have a number of Charter Flights operating in December, so jump on board!

Book with us and travel to India in December and make up for all that lost time.

The December Effect

There is something about December and travelling to India. There is no better way to mark the end of the year than to spend time with loved ones back home, especially when you don’t have to worry about quarantine or applying for exemptions.

Many families in Australia know that this is the time of the year when things wind down. Work, business and the hectic lives we lead…they all pause for a few weeks before kicking off again in the new year.

Just as we did when all borders were closed, this time as well, we have launched a BRAND NEW series of CHARTER FLIGHTS from Australia to India across the following dates:

  • Friday, 17 December
  • Sunday, 19 December
  • Monday, 20 December
  • Friday, 24 December

Gaura Travel will also directly operate charter flights from India to Australia for the following dates:

  • Thursday, 16 December
  • Saturday, 18 December
  • Sunday, 19 December
  • Thursday, 23 December

In other words this time of the year becomes the perfect time to fly to India and catch-up with those who have missed you and have hoped for you to be able to make it back home.

And then of course there are those who have had to put their plans of holidaying in India on the backburner. But now even they can bring their great Indian vacation dream back to life.

So hurry, book your seats before it all sells out.

The Omicron effect (or the lack of)

As per South African reports, coronavirus experts in the country are excited to see that the new Omicron variant might be less damaging than the Delta variant.

The Omicron variant is seen to be much milder and is seen to be less lethal in its impact on humans. This means that the world only must cope with a mutant that is showing signs of being far less threatening.

Scott Morrison, the Prime Minister of Australia has already categorically denied the possibility of further lockdowns and has instead urged state leaders to continue on with their reopening plans.

Medical professionals do believe that most Covid vaccines, including the Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca jabs, are designed to protect against variants to a certain degree, similar to how they protected against previous variants (Delta, Alpha etc.)

The message is clear – yes, we have a new variant but increased knowledge about its behaviours and keeping the faith in the vaccination rollout and the overall strategy will help us continue with our travel plans with more reassurance on our safety.

Hey travellers, we have dealt with ‘bigger and badder’ villains more effectively; let us not worry about the sidekicks. 

Make this a December to Remember

Flights are a ‘go’ and they will take off as planned. But we hope they do so with you on it!

So, call us and book your seats before we run out of them!

We can guarantee you this: every other person on the plane will be vaccinated and will have just returned a negative COVID test. Is that the safest place to be at right now? You bet!

You can reach our knowledgeable team 24/7. We look forward to talking soon!
