The Rocks is hoping to serve up all your Christmas-time needs in its neighbourhood — from bespoke gifts and decorations to joyful meals and even a life-sized snow globe.
The giant snow globe will be installed within The Rocks' cobble streets, where you can also find weekend Christmas Markets every Friday through Sunday from December 7–23. Roaming entertainers, art installations and street food will accompany the gift stallholders — from the latter, expect artisan presents like handmade jewellery, wooden children's toys, locally made Christmas decorations and independent designer prints. Plus, DJs will keep the party going on Friday and Saturday nights from 7–10pm.
The Rocks' usual shops will be done up in your standard red-and-green, silver-and-gold hues, too. And the local bars and pubs have you covered post-shopping, from craft brews at Endeavor Tap Rooms and Aperol spritzes at The Observer Hotel to cocktails on Mrs Jones terrace and drinks-with-a-view on The Glenmore's rooftop.
The Christmas Markets will be open from 9am–9pm on Friday and 10am–5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
