  • Magnificent place. A must visit especially during Christmas. Good vibes and fancy decorations. Best part is that you can get your message on the Christmas tree as many time as you like. Love this place. Such an icon. Everyone I come here it feels like it's the first time
  • This is a great place to visit. It is always bustling and interesting. Wether you are a traveler or a local this is a nice place to be.
  • Martin Place is one of the most central spots in the Sydney business district. Martin Place starts at George Street and goes up the hill several street blocks finishing at Macquarie Street. Martin Place during the week is full of business people from banks, law firms and tech start-ups. Recently Martin Place has been given the nickname "Silicon Place" due to more & more start-ups moving in. Lots of beautiful buildings to admire, places to eat including the MLC Centre and benches to sit at to eat. During the weekend Martin Place is extremely quiet.
  • A great space in the heart of Sydney, with so much going on, in and around you. Always fantastic around Christmas time. A very special place for our thoughts and prayers of our Anzac and war hero's.
  • Beautiful Christmas tree. Nice arrangements for the choir. Best place to be on Christmas Eve if you are looking for a nice celebration atmosphere. Wonderful for pics as well!
