If you’re in town on business, vacation or a local until New Year’s day, you must get down to the Market because this is absolutely something not to be missed. Imagine stepping into a massive globe (specifically 8.5 meters in diameter, or nearly 28 feet) and kids to experience snow for the first time? It literally runs chills down your spine in excitement with the thought of having a few moments in a gigantic snow globe.
The globe will, naturally, feature a Christmas scene, built by professional set makers who have transformed the area into a winter wonderland with the help of some handy snow machines and snow blowers. Grab your mittens-on-a-string, ugly holiday sweaters and knitted hat for a unique experience.
If you want to go the extra mile and enter to win $1000 in shopping vouchers, then take a selfie in the globe and follow @marketcity on Instagram, while you tag your snow-selfie with #mcsnowglobe.
As a double bonus for students, check the Market City web page for discounts and deals. For all parents visiting Sydney to see their son or daughter at university, drag them down to the market and while you’re there, have a browse around at the stores. From food to gifts (last minute Christmas presents?), novelties to electronic, the market has all bases covered. Directly located above Paddy’s Markets in the center of Chinatown, this is the only shopping destination in the area with 30 factory outlets.
After a chilling thrill, take a balmy one hour stroll up George Street to Circular Quay, followed by a short ferry ride to Cremorne Point. The skyline views of the city are stupendous and Cremorne Point Manor boasts one of the best spots to view downtown Sydney at its best. If you need additional coaxing, check the hotel’s home page video and you’ll see why Tripadvisor gave the Manor a Certificate of Excellence, 4 years in a row. You may have just experienced an oversized bubble yet now you can enjoy one of the most famous landmarks in the globe!
