Where are Sydney's best Christmas lights for 2018?
Now that it's officially December, and the holiday vibe has kicked in, Christmas displays are lighting up all over Sydney, and there are certain streets and suburbs that get into the spirit, year in, year out.
Here is our list of best suburban Christmas light displays all across Sydney. The best part about this list is that the displays are shared with the community for FREE.
Sydney Mums Group has put together this list based on local recommendations but if you discover new favourites, or notice some of these have slipped, we'd love your comments so we can keep the list fresh and as accurate as possible.
