Christmas is in the air in Sydney what with folks shopping, planning and generally getting ready for Christmas. The Town Hall will be lit up for four weeks reflecting the festive mood of the season. Wattle blossoms, kookaburras, blue bottles, flying foxes and echidnas –the images of Australia will be projected in a cycle on the magnificent facade of the Town Hall for twelve days to add to the colour and the general carnival atmosphere of the city!

The giant Christmas tree (21 metres tall) will be lit up with around 58,000 LED lights and over 300 seven pointed stars spreading the joy and spirit of Christmas!

Kids’ favourite entertainment shows will be performed live, and with Santa, carols, music, jazz bands and all, the season of Christmas is a season of fun for kids in Sydney! It’s, however, not just kids that have all the fun. There are numerous events for Christmas for the young and the youthful and all the rest! The fireworks are just about everybody’s favourite and while enjoying the fireworks of Christmas, folks at Sydney gear up for the fabulous fireworks of the New Year’s Eve that Sydney is famous for! Other options are dining, dancing and cruising – all with a dash of romance, of course!

Like everything else in Sydney, Christmas celebrations , with their Australian themes and Sydney attitude, have that special tang that is unique to Sydney!

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!
