Follow Santa Claus as he makes his way through the city to switch on the Martin Place Christmas tree.
If you wander down to Circular Quay on the evening of Thursday 30 November you better watch out. There will be a very special visitor from the North Pole.
Just hear those sleigh bells jingling.
Santa will ride along Pitt Street on his sleigh accompanied by a 65-piece marching band and elves on reindeer tricycles. Unfortunately no one gets to ride with Santa on the sleigh but you're all welcome to walk along and enjoy the show.
With the help of Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore AO, Santa will light the 24m tree and marvel at the unique decorations inspired by Australian flowers.
Fun at Martin Place will include a kaleidoscope of colours and decorative lights every 15 minutes to midnight, roving entertainment and delicious food from the markets, including a Bar Coco gelato van.
