Sydney Christmas Lights


Oh Sydney, you do know how to put on a show!  


The Christmas lights of St Mary's Cathedral are sure worth the trip into the city after dark.  Tonight we zipped in to the CBD, found a great car park on the street and were surprised by the lack of people shopping in the city (does everybody shop online??), we walked around the David Jones windows to see the puppetry and then crossed Hyde Park to St Mary's Cathedral where there was a choir singing carols and then a spectacular light show.


The wreaths represent "unity" from nations across the globe. 


The Madonna Series is also beautiful


 If you live in Sydney you must go for a look, it's very beautiful - the sequence of lights last for 8 minutes and it's breathtaking. 


Wishing you a Merry and Happy Christmas from Sydney!

  3. I agree we saw it last night and were pleasantly surprised - just lovely. Of course David Jones windows were magical as they have been since I was a little girl.
