Celebrate Christmas in the sky!

  • Saturday November 4th 2017

Jingle all the way to Sydney Tower Eye this Christmas and experience the magic of the North Pole in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

From 1 December – 23 December, the Observation Deck at the Sydney Tower Eye will be transformed into Santa’s Highest Grotto – a Christmas wonderland 250 metres above street level.

Children (and parents!) are invited to share their Christmas wishes with Santa as they’re transported to his festive grotto complete with a fireplace, music and a Christmas tree. 

Along with the Christmas festivities, visitors to Sydney Tower Eye will have the opportunity to capture their magical visit with a FREE* Santa photo!
