The Grounds is no stranger to extravagant themes. From the Moroccan desert to lush secret gardens, Sydney’s favourite hangout leaves no stone unturned when it comes to putting on a show.
They’re going the extra mile this festive season by giving its premises a Christmas-inspired makeover. Complete with a naughty or nice lane, a towering Christmas tree and innumerable photo ops, the Christmas installation is a colourful and cheeky escape in the heart of the city. We’re officially coining it ‘Sydney’s most Instagrammable Christmas installation.’
The Grounds, Christmas 2022
This year’s theme is a traditional New York Christmas in the style of many Christmas movies we’ve seen and loved over the years.
As you enter The Grounds, you’ll find the Nice Lane with generous dustings of snow, red and white baubles, glittering stars, snow globes and vibrant florals adorning the space. A stroll down the Instagrammable walkway will lead you to the Naughty Lane — a vibrant space filled with candy canes, festive ornaments, reindeers, popsicle wreaths and so much more.
There are also opportunities for a classic holiday picture with Santa Claus but you’ll want to book a spot fast as it tends to sell out quick.
Aside from the infectious Christmas installation, there are plenty of other exciting things to do at the venue. Grab a coffee from their famed cafe, soak up the fresh air in The Garden, shop for some lovely blooms from Florals by Silva and grab a bite from The Potting Shed.
