Check out the Christmas lights

We publish a comprehensive list of houses and streets in the Hills renowned for their Christmas lights – you can check it out here. If you live in a street where someone has fabulous lights or you deck out your own house, email us at so we can make sure you’re on the list.

Go for a paddle or picnic

If the weather’s nice this weekend, here are some swimming spots in Sydney that we love to visit. They also double as nice picnic spots if it’s a little too cool for a swim.

Go on a bushwalk
