Top Christmas Tree Displays in Sydney


Posted 2015-12-13 by Caroleannfollow
Christmas Trees are possibly the most celebrated decoration of the festive season. I have always had a special place for them in my heart. They light up our world through the weeks before christmas and are a symbol of good things to come.

%%You may remember the words of this famous christmas carol which has always been my favourite.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree
Thy leaves are so unchanging
Not only green when summers here
But also when its cold and drear. %%

On Wednesday afternoon I had business in the city. When I had finished I decided to walk from Town Hall to Circular Quay and see some of the Christmas decorations along the way.

I could not help but notice there was a lot of beautiful Christmas Trees on show.

The first one that took my eye was right in the middle of George St outside The Dymocks Building. This is the area that was going to be closed to traffic that night for construction of the light rail.

As I continued down George St I passed lots of christmas shoppers and brightly decorated shop windows. As I passed Martin Place I stopped to look at the Christmas Tree there. This has always been a favourite with people and is usually a lovely sight.

A littlle further on there are two more beautiful Christmas Trees in view. One at Australia Square, the other in the Nab building near Bridge St. Both put on a show for those who passed by.

This walk down George St is all on the flat which makes it a easy walk ,even for those in wheelchairs. As long as you stay out off the rush hour it is quite simple to do. You can do this walk in the early evening if you wish; there are less crowds and the lights of the Christmas Trees will shine that much brighter.

As you continue walking down George St, you will come across The Four Seasons Hotel. This is situated on the left hand side of George St., very close to Circular Quay and the Rocks. As you enter the hotel you will see a very decorative Christmas Tree in the middle of the beautiful foyer. Sit awhile, maybe have a coffee and enjoy.

Once you are rested continue on to Circular Quay and make your way to Customs House. Outside it you will see another bright Christmas Tree on show. While you are there take the time to look inside. Customs House has a stunning foyer with many surprises and comfortable seating.

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me.
How often has the Christmas tree!
Afforded me the greatest glee.

If you have a little more time to spare you can continue your walk down to Circular Quay and catch the Ferry for an enjoyable trip to Manly. At Manly walk straight up The Corso and you will see some of the native trees with pretty lights adorning them.

This walk is all on the flat and the Manly Ferry has wheelchair access as well.

As you continue on a little further you will see an attractive Christmas Tree in the middle of the Corso.

As you are now in Manly you may choose to have fish and chips on the beach. As a local I would recommend the fish market and cafe in Wentworth St which runs parallel behind The Corso. The fish is fresh every day and cooked while you wait. Also there is a very good Copenhagen Ice Cream shop on the beach end of the Corso if you feel like dessert.

If you want to explore the best of Manly while here, you may like to take the easy access walk to Shelly Beach leading around from the main beach. This is one of the prettiest walks in Sydney.

As you make your way back to Manly Wharf, it may be twilight. If you have time to enjoy the night lights on the promenade that leads to the wharf it will make an enjoyable end to a pleasant day. This is a good walk for families and children will love the christmas trees.
