Christmas festivities in Darling Harbour are absolutely fun, fascinating and free! The celebrations begin on November 28, Saturday. Darling Harbour will have the tallest Christmas tree in Sydney, standing magnificently tall at 21 metres.

The Family Christmas Concert will present all the popular Christmas songs, and Santa Claus’ arrival towards the finale of the concert will add to the festive fun! The lighting of the giant tree will be done by a child from Starlight Children’s Foundation during the concert. Christmas Carols by the Tree will feature the live performance of traditional carols by the city’s best a cappella groups. Spectacular fireworks over the Cockle Bay on the Christmas Eve would add magic to the splendour!

If you are thinking beyond the free entertainment of the season, Darling Harbour is ideal for its shopping and sightseeing opportunities. The place is famous for its shops that sell artefacts, semi-precious stones and other curios. The National Maritime Museum, the Power House Museum, the Sydney Aquarium and the Sydney Wildlife World are worth a visit any time of the year.

The Harbourside would be the best place to pleasantly while away your time with its cluster of shops and eating places in the setting of the harbour. Cruising around the harbour would be a better way to experience the harbour. A  showboat cruise with its total package of entertainment,  sightseeing and five-star dining experience would be your best bet for the ultimate harbour experience and total value for money!

Sydney Christmas – a summer Christmas!

Christmas in Sydney is in the summer season. Hence celebrations of Christmas in Sydney are slightly different from those of a white Christmas.

The Christmas decorations do not include holly and mistletoe. They are substituted by Christmas bush and Christmas bell which are two decorative native plants available during the summer season. Indeed the houses in Sydney, or rather in the whole of Australia, are not as heavily decked up as those in other countries where it is winter during Christmas, as people here enjoy the warm climate and hence are not as confined to indoors!

Christmas feasts in Sydney most often include seafood and very often exclude the turkey. And often they are outdoor feasts with steaks and prawns on the barbie and cold salads!

Nowhere else would you find Santa Claus pictured in swimmers or Santa riding on a surfboard or Santa water-skiing! Thanks to the weather, people love celebrating Christmas outdoors or even on the beaches. Cruising companies offer party cruises during Christmas time to celebrate the season.

Magistic Cruises offer Christmas lunch and dinner cruises with buffets inclusive of choice seafood varieties and exceptional wine. One can hire a private deck or even a whole boat! Sydney Showboats offer cruises with cabaret shows and live jazz bands. All these offers come with group discounts.

If you are in Sydney this Christmas season, celebrate it on a cruise. Enjoy the feast, the fun and the outdoors!

Office Christmas parties and depleting budgets

Are you one of those employers who are harried by the financial pressures and problems of recession and are having to resort to cutting expenses and trimming budgets? Then the time that you dread most is fast approaching – the time for Christmas and year-end parties.

Christmas is a time which employees in any organisation generally look forward to.  So what if the budget is down? It still pays to have an office Christmas Party. Meeting each other socially and forgetting personal grudges at least for the time being along with the general anticipation of a great New Year help to improve camaraderie and goodwill among the members of the organisation.

Sydney offers several venues to hold your Christmas Party, each with its own specialties and features. However, a Sydney Harbour cruise would be the best of venues, as it comes naturally with a package of spectacular views of the harbour and the excitement of a cruise.

The luxury and comfort of the Magistic Lunch and Dinner as well as Extended Lunch Cruises and the live entertainment provided on the Sydney Showboats like cabaret shows and jazz bands are guaranteed to make your function unique. And the group discounts offered for all their cruise options, with bigger groups earning higher discounts, you can not only have the proverbial cake but eat it too with the icing and all!
