The Rocks has always had a magical feel to it, with its labyrinth of quaint, cobbled laneways set against the glittering backdrop of the harbour. And in the run-up to Christmas, the area will get a festive makeover. Australia may be famed for its hot summers, but the giant snow globe on Playfair Street will deliver Sydneysiders a taste of a white Christmas. Enter a living fairytale at Wells Courtyard, which will be transformed into an elegant white and gold Christmas village featuring replicas of The Rocks architecture, popular restaurants and shops. The seven-metre Jack Mundey Place Christmas Tree stands at the heart of all the magic, dripping with decorations. It's the perfect photo-op to get some pics for the Gram, or to just meander through the streets and take in the magic. Whatever your preference, the Christmas Wonderlanes decorations are sure to bring the festive cheer.
