Wander through Martin Place and soak in the magic of Sydney Christmas! The largest Christmas tree in NSW is decorated with more than 110,000 LED lights, a 3.4-metre colour-changing star and 330 specially created glossy baubles… and it will be at Martin Place from Saturday 25 November.
The tree’s 800 branches are dressed with 15,000 flowers representing 9 different kinds of Australian flowers: banksia, waratah, bottlebrush, wattle, eucalyptus gum flower, kangaroo paw, flannel flower, pink wax flower and white wax flower.
8,000 warm white icicle fairy lights will span across Martin Place. See the 6 strings of lights, each hosting a large star.
Enjoy a kaleidoscope of colours and decorative lights every 15 minutes from 8pm to midnight.
Drop by Pitt Street Mall canopy of light while you’re in the city. Then head over to George Street to see the dazzling lights adorning the façade and awning of the Queen Victoria building. The Woolworths building across from Sydney Town Hall will also be draped in a curtain of light.
