Darling Harbour is wasting no time getting into the Christmas spirit with an exciting holiday program lined up. Expect the harbour to be fully decked out to bring in the silly season in the most colourful way. Over 150 cafes and restaurants will join in on the action and guests can also look forward to live music and dance, dazzling fireworks and kid’s entertainment.
Darling Harbour Christmas Festival
Darling Harbour’s popular 6-meter-tall bauble will make a return on November 21. The festive fixture comes with tons of multi-coloured lights making it a picture-perfect backdrop for your Christmas selfie. Plus as you stroll along the harbour and take in all the holiday cheer, you’ll find 13 giant baubles in the water. Expect visits from Santa and fireworks on Friday and Saturday evenings in December.
Several popular Darling Harbour spots will join in on the action throughout the holiday period. Indulge in a festive G&T high tea at Hyatt Regency or enjoy a sublime three-course Christmas eve luncheon by Cafe del Mar. There’s also a Christmas eve dinner at Sailmaker Restaurant and a huge Christmas day buffet by Crowne Plaza.
You’ll want to mark your calendars for the weekends of December 10-11 and 17-18 for an exciting Christmas Festival. There’ll be food trucks on site, live music and dance and picture opportunities with Santa. The full program of events will drop soon but for now, head here and start planning ahead.
