Martin Place Christmas Tree and Choir

A holiday season celebration in the heart of Sydney.

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

Decorated with more than 110,000 LED lights and 330 custom-made shiny balls, the 800 branches of the Martin Place tree are clad with 15,000 flowers representing nine different kinds of Australian flowers.

It is covered by a 3.4 meter long color-changing star and is a glittering spectacle of colors and illuminated ornaments. The light show is every 15 minutes from kl. 19.00 to midnight.

If that’s not dizzying enough, Martin Place will also be home to over 4,000 warm-white icicle fairy lights strung along six light strings spanning the square, each hosting a large star.

While enjoying the spectacle, you can enjoy the holiday sounds of a Christmas choir, with performances from Sydney’s top choir held under the tree every night from 18.00 until Christmas.

The tree stands there from Thursday 25 November to Saturday 1 January, while the choirs perform from Wednesday 1 December to Christmas Eve Friday 24 December. No reservations required – just show up and take a look.
