It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
For Sydneysiders, visiting Martin Place around Christmas time is a yearly highlight and a great way to build up some holiday cheer. The tree that acts as the location’s centrepiece is the tallest Christmas tree in all of New South Wales, and is made all the more special thanks to an abundance of decorations including more than 110,000 LED lights, a 3.4-metre colour-changing star and 330 specially created glossy baubles. Talk about tree envy…
In years past, many would gather for the annual tree lighting and Christmas concert, but 2020 will be a slightly more subdued affair. That said, visitors can enjoy a lightshow every 15 minutes from 7pm to midnight up until December 31. Martin Place will also be decked out with 4,104 warm white icicle fairy lights. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
