We're finally out of lockdown and there is no better place to create festive memories with our family and friends than in Darling Harbour!

The Darling Harbour precinct will be buzzing day and night, offering the perfect place to celebrate Christmas in a COVID-safe way. 

To make it even better, the program is packed with (mostly free!) entertainment for the whole family to enjoy in the exciting weeks leading up to Christmas.

Sky Castle

The Sky Castle interactive light installation at Tumbalong Park by ENESS will allow you to walk through a rainbow formed by a cluster of inflatable arches, symbolising a freedom from isolation and clear skies after hard times. How great is that?

Darling Harbour Christmas Festival

Tumbalong Park will be transformed into a Christmas-themed wonderland complete with food stalls and trucks, free kids activities, live music and dance performances and bubble machines for big blasts of extra fun! 

Join in the fun over two weekends, 11-12 and 18-19 December from 4pm - 9pm.
