WEL­COME TO SYD­NEY

Where Sydney - - Editorial -

There is so much to see and do in Syd­ney this De­cem­ber.

Syd­ney’s Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions are in full swing, from the mas­sive Martin Place Christ­mas Tree to the Lights of Christ­mas at St Mary’s Cathe­dral (page 16).

Head to a har­bour­side van­tage point and watch the leg­endary Rolex Syd­ney to Ho­bart Yacht Race on Box­ing Day. He­len Hayes has the lowdown on this year’s race (page 10).

The big­gest party of the year has to be New Year’s Eve. Syd­ney loves to ring in the new year with an enor­mous fire­works dis­play in the har­bour and on Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge. Get down to the fore­shore early to grab your spot for this fan­tas­tic dis­play (page 8).

The Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Aus­tralia is cur­rently show­ing a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion by pi­o­neer­ing Swiss artist Pip­i­lotti Rist (page 14), while The Aus­tralian Bal­let is per­form­ing Christo­pher Wheel­don’s “Alice’s Ad­ven­tures in Won­der­land©” at the Capi­tol The­atre (page 20).

Turn to our Where Now fea­ture (page 12) for De­cem­ber’s must-see shows, ex­hi­bi­tions and per­for­mances. En­joy world-class events like “Muriel’s Wed­ding: The Mu­si­cal”, “Beau­ti­ful: The Ca­role King Mu­si­cal” and Moon­light Cin­ema at Cen­ten­nial Park.

How­ever you choose to spend your time here, we hope you en­joy your stay in fes­tive Syd­ney!
