Martin Place Christmas tree and corn

A feast for the holidays in the heart of Sydney.

The tallest Christmas tree in NSW is back in Martin Place this Christmas.

Decorated with over 110,000 LED lights and 330 specially made shiny baubles, the 800 branches of the Martin Place tree are adorned with 15,000 flowers representing nine different varieties of Australian blossoms.

Capped by a 3.4-meter-long color-changing star, it is a shimmering spectacle of colors and illuminated ornaments. The light show is every 15 minutes from 7pm to midnight.

As if that wasn’t dazzling enough, Martin Place will also be home to more than 4,000 warm white icicle lights strung along six strings of lights across the square, each featuring a large star.

While you take in the spectacle, enjoy the Christmas sounds of a Christmas choir, with performances by Sydney’s best choirs held under the tree from 6pm each evening leading up to Christmas.

The tree will be there from Thursday 25 November to Saturday 1 January, while the choirs perform from Wednesday 1 December to Christmas Eve Friday 24 December. No need to book – just go and have a look.
