Christmas in Sydney



Sydney, the most talked about city in Australia — the heritage buildings, the Sydney harbour bridge to the Opera house, ferries that take you almost anywhere you want to go, let alone the history that this city breathes is truly heartwarming. This city has Christmas down pat and I am just dying to show you what it has to offer.
