St Mary's Cathedral in the heart of Sydney is bathed in a visual light display highlighting the the meaning of Christmas with scenes of an angel, Mary and Joseph and the three wise men riding camels.

Shoppers browsed stores in Pitt Street Mall under the Canopy of Lights, as others walked through a candycane-inspired light installation in Darling Harbour precinct.

The tallest Christmas tree in New South Wales state stood in Martin Place decorated with more than 110,000 LED lights and 330 baubles as Christmas carols flooded the square and added to the joyous spirit of the season.
