Anyone on holidays in Australia over Christmas may want to attend an event to put them in the festive spirit.
People taking holidays in Sydney during the festive period may find it strange to be in the sunshine while the UK freezes.
A free event in the city’s Botanical Gardens may be just the thing to get travellers in the mood for Christmas.
Carols in the Domain is a giant, outdoor, candle-lit carol service followed by fireworks over the distinctive skyline.
More than 100,000 people attend the event each year – which is broadcast on television – to sing along to well-known tunes.
Stars such as Ronan Keating and Katherine Jenkins will be headlining the show, which raises money for the Salvation Army and its Oasis Youth Support Network.
The celebrations kick off at 12:00 local time on Saturday December 19th.
Carols in the Domain is Australia’s largest free Christmas concert and is now in its 27th year. Father Christmas will make an appearance in one of the marquees and there will be a children’s carnival early in the day to entertain the kids.
