Make sure you wear your Santa suit and get in the spirit of this cheeky Aussie Christmas celebration, where you can win prizes for the best Santa outfits!

Get your spot by the harbour for the main show at 8pm, featuring a dazzling water spectacle on Cockle Bay with daredevil Santas on jet skis, colourful pyrotechnics, inflatable Santas, a Santa-themed vessel parade and an eclectic soundtrack that captures the essence of Christmas. See the amazing Christmas floats sail around the bay that are being specially created by NIDA design students.

Fireworks display over Cockle Bay and the lighting of the new Darling Harbour Christmas tree.

Continue the festive fun and get involved in the annual Variety Santa Fun Run to raise funds for a great cause. Grab your running shoes, your Santa suit and most importantly – your Christmas Spirit, and join the fun run of the year! Kicking off at 9am on Sunday 27 November, this year’s 5km fun run starts at Palm Grove in Darling Harbour.
