Martin PlaceSquare or place
Wide street running through Sydney's centre, from the General Post Office at the George Street end, and completed when Sydney City Council resumed property to extend the street all the way to Macquarie Street in the 1930s. Lined with elegant buildings of grand design and lavish materials it has been entirely pedestrian since 1979.
Christmas in Martin Placeby Laila Ellmoos, 2014
The Christmas tree in Martin Place, a fixture of Sydney's festive season, is a relatively recent addition to the landscape of the city, dating from 1971 when Martin Place was first converted into a pedestrian space. It is, however, a continuation of older traditions in the city.
