Christmas Harbour Lights winners announced - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views


Close to 90 traders and local community attended the Manly Harbour Christmas Lights Awards night and Chamber Christmas party. The Chamber was delighted and overwhelmed with the number of entries in each category.

All categories were hotly contested, with judging was based on the photos submitted. Careful consideration was given to the overall look, how much space was covered in decorations or tinsel, the ‘wow’ factor, and the size of the boat or house. The judges had their work cut out for them.
