The Christmas party booking season is now in full swing and we're reminiscing about some of the best parties we've run and why we love throwing great Christmas parties in Sydney!


Creating the perfect Christmas party is no small task so we thought we'd put together a bit of a guide for throwing an epic work Christmas party!



Find a great Christmas party venue

Making a memorable event means finding the perfect event to suit your needs. Luckily for you, Merlin Events has Sydney's most unique Christmas party venues around! From cocktails in the Great Barrier Reef theatre, surrounded by 1000's of tropical fish, to partying at 250m above Sydney's streets at the Sydney Tower Eye we have an amazing venue waiting for you!



Christmas party invitations are an important consideration. Will your event be open to partners or children? This will affect the quantities and type of food and drink to be served, as well as your venue booking times.

We recommend keeping children at home for Christmas parties in order for everyone to let their hair down. However, if you're looking for a family friendly Christmas party, talk to the team about our family day functions. 



We can help out when it comes to theming up a venue to suit your wild party theme idea! Here are great ideas that have worked well in the past:


Food to booze ratio

We've all been to a function where there was little or no food but lots of alcohol and the results are never pretty! In order for everyone to have a great time and last the duration of the night (without featuring in Monday morning's office gossip), a good amount of food can never be underestimated.

Even if you're not having a sit down dinner, event staff roaming your party with cocktail platters will ensure staff have a chance to satisfy their hunger and thirst in equal measures!



If you want to dance the night away you've got to have good music! For full bands, DJ's or even just an iPod, our sound systems are top quality and will have everyone dancing to the beat. Our team know some amazing artists so talk to us and we'll find someone perfect for your event.   



After a few drinks it's important that everyone is taken care of after the function, as well as during it.

Getting to and from Darling Harbour has never been easier with our team on hand to help with your transport requirements. We can organise taxis to be ready for you as soon as the party's over or, for something extra special, ferrying your staff from Darling Harbour to the transport hub of Circular Quay will make them feel like royalty!
