If you are in Sydney around Christmas time, don’t miss the most popular Christmas event known as Carols in the Domain.
This huge event is a massive Christmas celebration where families come together to sing along to Christmas carols by either attending in person live at the Domain or by watching it on TV.
Carols In the Domain 2022, Date, TV Event Time & Ticket Prices, Sydney
This traditional event is held outdoors and involves live music and singing performances of popular Australian artists, famous TV personalities, as well as local choirs. This event is telecast live on TV each year before Christmas Eve, so those who can’t attend in person can enjoy singing along to carols from the comfort of their home.
This year’s performers included Carrie Underwood, Phil Burton, Samantha Jade, Mickey & Minnie, The Wiggles, Isaiah Firebrace, Mark Vincent, Paulini, and many many more!
The carols event in Sydney also includes a spectacular fireworks display. Thousands flock to the Domain year after year, where they bring a picnic blanket and a few nibbles, and settle in to listen to traditional Christmas music as the sun goes down.
Seats For The Salvos are back! Get a sneak peek and enjoy the live rehearsal of all the traditional Christmas carols by your favourite stars. Due to popular demand, and to raise much-needed funds for The Salvation Army, there will be ‘Seats for Salvos’ available at this year’s dress rehearsal on Friday 17th December in the VIP and reserved seating areas.
Carols in the Domain will be televised on Channel 7 from 7:30pm. Gates generally open at 1pm and attendees are permitted to bring picnic rugs and ground seating and free standing shade structures. Items not permitted include elevated seating, beach umbrellas, glass products, sparklers, pets, BBQ’s or bean bags. Alcohol is permitted, but only in small quantities.
The Domain is adjacent to the Royal Botanic Gardens, between Art Gallery Road and Hospital Road, Sydney. This year, the event will be fully-fenced to ensure a safe environment for all patrons. When you arrive at the Domain, please make your way to the Main Entry – or the Reserved Entry if you’ve purchased Reserved Seats – on Art Gallery Road. At the entry, you will be required to check in by scanning the QR code displayed, have your ticket scanned and show your vaccine certificate or valid exemption for patrons aged 16 and over.
