Grab your Santa hat because it’s time to celebrate a summer Christmas. Here are some of the best ways to get festive in Sydney…

Christmas in the City

Christmas in the City kicks off the season with a festive playground in the heart of the City on Saturday 23 November from 6.30pm!

There will be loads of roaming entertainers and headline acts including Jimmy Giggle, Justine Clarke, SplashDance, The Nannas & The Poppas!
The Martin Place Christmas Tree will host a sound and light show every 15 minutes from 7.30pm, and there will also be loads of activities for the kids.
The evening will end with a bang, with fireworks visible from anywhere in the event site! If you get lucky, you might even spot Santa in a reindeer led sleigh riding through town!
With road closures in the city, public transport is your best way to get in and out.
