Hogwarts and its enchanting surroundings might be closer than you think. To make Christmas extra magical this year, an actual Harry Potter-themed Christmas lights display has come to Sydney. Get transported to the magical world of witches and wizards with floating candles from the Great Hall, sparkly golden snitches and Christmas trees decked out in Hogwarts house colours. You’ll want to absolutely add it to your list when you’re out exploring all of Sydney’s lavish Christmas illuminations. The festive display can be found in Sydney’s Ramsgate Beach and is completely free to visit.
Harry Potter Christmas lights house display
When you’re in the southern Sydney suburb, look for the house adorned with festive lights. You’ll find illuminated pathways and bright trees bedecked with colour and many magic-heavy elements to explore. Watch out for Patronus animals, take a picture with the Thestrals pulling a carriage and try and find the five hidden Dobby statues at the house. There’s even a huge Whomping Willow tree in the yard to complete the experience. The full-throttle Harry Potter experience is stocked with magical confections and holiday trinkets so don’t miss out.
Find the interactive light display at 30 Alfred Street, Ramsgate Beach until Tuesday, December 26.
P.S. If you can’t get enough of Harry Potter, there’s an actual Harry Potter Forbidden Forest experience coming to Melbourne complete with a themed village, food and drink and mystical creatures so start planning your trip now.
