Fun mostly free things for the kids leading upto Christmas
It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas with various Christmas trees sparkling at various locations around the CBD and various shopping centres. As the festive season begins, Darling Harbour transforms into Santa world with a sea of red and white jolly men which will have the kids spinning around to spot each one.

Watch out for the Santas having a jolly time on the water during the Santa Fest Water Spectacular in late November. With one whole month of magic leading up to Christmas, see what's in store.
