Christmas Events in Darling Harbour
The festive season is mostly a time for family and friends and this list will give you some idea of the activities that you could attend around the Darling Harbour area.

There will be amazing giant decorations and light displays, or you can watch a festive film, eat, drink and be merry at any of the over 60 venues in the area.

There is so much on around Sydney during the Christmas break, that my problem is deciding which ones I can actually miss out on, and which ones are a "must go to" event!

For this fun event, you need to wear your ugliest Christmas jumper for the ultimate Christmas photo with your friends! This will be held from Saturday 15th to Monday 24th December, from 1.00 pm until 5.00 pm.

Druitt's Landing near Cockle Bay Wharf, Darling Harbour

For further information phone (02) 9240 8500.

It is a FREE event, and for this, the uglier the jumper, the better the photo! It should be a photo that you will not forget.

This dazzling 6-metre high Christmas decoration is very unique and a must see. It is assembled already and will be there until Wednesday 26th December, and it is FREE to see it. You actually DO need to see it to believe it!

This bauble is not your average Christmas decoration. It actually lights up the surrounding areas making it a great spot for a Christmas photo.

At this workshop, you will learn how to make your own Christmas decorations. These are FREE children's workshops and you can decorate your own bauble, make papercraft decorations, write special messages, and explore other Christmas crafts.

They will be held from Tuesday 18th until Monday 24th December, from 11.00 am until 4.00 pm.
