Twenty-three year old girl living in Hobart, Tassie. I am in love with nature, music, food and animals so you'll see a lot of that here 🌿 See @chloeoliviad on Instagram for more photos from where I've adventured. 🚐⛰
It's that magical time of year when Santa Claus is on his way for one of the biggest events most of us celebrate each year, Christmas!
If you're a Sydney local or happen to be visiting between the 8th to the 27th of December, you're in for a treat this year with the second Sydney Santa Spectacular, dubbed Australia's biggest Christmas festival.

The upcoming season is all about family, fun and the company we keep, and the Santa Spectacular Festival is making Christmas get-togethers a lot easier with all your fun and entertainment in one place. Over the two plus weeks, you can enjoy Australia's largest open-air ice skating rink, toboggan slides, a double-decker carousel and of course a festival favourite, all the Fairy Floss you can sink your teeth into!
This 19 day extravaganza in its second year is promising to be bigger and better than last years 40,000 attendance. The coordinators of the festival have really gone out of their way to bring a 'White Christmas' to a sizzling Sydney at this time of year. If you've ever dreamed of a White Christmas in Australia, then the Rosehill Racecourse Gardens is where you should be this Christmas.
Located west of Sydney's CBD, close to Parramatta, the grounds will be exploding with Christmas cheer, sounds and sights. Cost wise, you are looking at $41 a ticket for General Admission or $36 each if you buy in bundles of 4. The best thing, everything is included in your ticket price; parking, rides, attractions, workshops, carousel rides and so much more! The only thing that may incur a cost is drink/food purchases and gifts from stalls, but you are able to bring all your own food & drink.
Aside from the value for money & the fully packed list of attractions, my favourite thing about this festival is the 15 metre tall Christmas Tree that is the centrepiece for the entire festival. Festival-goers are also invited to place a present under the tree which will go to the charity Camp Quality & the Westmead and Randwick hospitals.
