What is the Most Precious Present?
Fond memories! Childhood Christmases are the most memorable ones. Think back to your own Christmas growing up. The smell of roasted ham, eggnog and cake would fill the air as everyone gathered at the table to share a meal and celebrate togetherness. What made Christmas special for you was the experience of spending a happy day with your parents. So, why should Christmas be any different for your children?
This holiday season don’t limit the presents to material things. Give your child an experience they will remember for a lifetime by taking them to some of these events in Sydney that you can visit as a family to celebrate the magic of Christmas.

At VIVE we believe that every great memory most often includes a meal. It creates memories and moments of pure happiness that one can look back at fondly.
