Martin Square Christmas Lights In Sydney 2023

Alice Street, Rooty Hill

Facebook fame? Check. Walk-through wonderland? Check. Licensed Christmas characters? Check! Get lost in a world of twinkling lights and familiar faces – it’s Christmas magic for all ages.

Canopy of Light

Pitt Street Mall is getting its own celestial ceiling! Stroll beneath a glittering tapestry of 80,000 LEDs and ten star-studded giants. It’s like walking through a Disney movie, minus the talking animals (unless you count the dancing lights, of course).

Childs Circuit, Belrose

Forget tangled cords and untameable bulbs, Belrose is bringing Christmas lights into the 21st century with a symphony of synchronised sparkle! Picture 30,000 LEDs dancing in perfect harmony to the beat of your favourite holiday tunes. No need to battle the crowds, just tune your radio, crank up the carols, and let the magic wash over you. A dazzling display for the tech-savvy Santa in all of us!

Jubilee Avenue, Beverley Park

Let it snow! (Well, sort of.) This Aussie-themed display comes complete with snow machines and a musical show, plus enough lights and decorations to make your inner elf squeal with delight. Don’t miss the 8 pm-10:30 pm nightly show – it’s Christmas magic in action!

Dunmore Street North, Bexley

Sugarplum ballerinas of light pirouette around a charming house, weaving a spell of old-world Christmas magic. This year’s dazzling display is bigger and brighter than ever, warming hearts and raising funds for little ones. Get your twinkle on!

Mallee Street, Quakers Hill

This Quaker Hill legend is bidding farewell after 30 years with a display to remember. Witness life-size reindeer on the roof, a snow-covered village, elves making toys, and even a sleigh you can sit in for a festive photo op. Catch Santa, Mrs. Claus, and a choir while you’re there – this is one last Christmas memory to cherish.

Magic Grove, Mosman

This Mosman mega-display isn’t just about lights, it’s about playtime! Inflatables galore keep the kiddos entertained during the day, while nightfall brings out the big guns – think festive contraptions, bubble blizzards, and laser shows that’ll make Rudolph jealous.

Martin Place

Brace yourself for the grand dame of Christmas lights – Martin Place! Picture a glittering giant sequoia draped in more LED baubles than Santa’s sack, all bathed in starry icicle magic. Feel the Yuletide vibes as you get lost in a forest of Aussie flora, each branch bursting with festive cheer.

Murrumba Place, Castle Hill

Dive into Aussie Christmas nostalgia with a giant lit-up koala, sparkling candy canes, and classic scenes like snowmen and nativity sets. Don’t forget to snap a pic with the eight-foot Santa and wander through the magical light tunnel – it’s a Christmas dream come true.

South Circuit, Oran Park

Forget waiting for the ice cream truck – South Circuit has one rolling up every weekend! On weekdays, you might snag a sneaky lolly from the owners (don’t tell Santa!). This interactive street is a decade-long tradition, spreading Christmas joy with houses decked out in twinkling lights and festive tunes.

South Street, Tempe

Get ready for a smoke and bubble extravaganza at the Tempe mega-display! Santa chills in his chair for picture-perfect moments, while the house explodes with hundreds of lights and festive cheer. This year, they’re raising funds for BeyondBlue, so your holiday spirit helps others shine brighter.

Sofa Street, Marayong

Move over, Griswold, there’s a new Christmas lights champion in town! Seven houses in Sofa Street have joined forces to create a cul-de-sac of pure yuletide joy. Think candy cane fences, reindeer on parade, and enough twinkle to make even Scrooge crack a smile.

The Cascades, Mount Annan

This display is a journey, not a destination! Walk through glittering arches and stars, snap a pic with the giant love heart and 2023 sign, and marvel at the new addition – a giant Santa hat on the roof! It’s a Christmas adventure you won’t soon forget.

The Strand Arcade

Forget mistletoe, this year, mistletoe-shaped gumnuts are raining down in the Strand Arcade! Wander under a canopy of oversized eucalyptus blooms, each one a kaleidoscope of twinkling lights. It’s a botanical Christmas bonanza that’ll have you humming “Waltzing Matilda” under your breath.

Waratah Street, North Bondi

This annual stunner returns with a dynamic display that’ll have you saying “Crikey, that’s bonza!” Think English village scenes, sparkling candy canes, firecracker icicles, inflatable kangaroos, and even a train chugging past illuminated sleighs. Get ready for a Christmas postcard come to life!
