Bermagui's main street is now sparkling with colour as seven Christmas signs have been installed along it, but with a twist - they do not depict the usual scenes of Santa and his elves, but of life in the seaside town.
It was an endeavor that involved the whole town: the signs were sponsored by its chamber of commerce, built by its men's shed group, and decorated by pupils from the local public school.
"Originally it was going to be Christmas trees, but they decided to expand it to different things in keeping with the area," Bermagui Men's Shed president Phil Baldwin said.
The different years at Bermagui Public School decorated a sign each and on Friday the school's prime minister Abbie Trenerry, deputy PM Jye Forbes and community affairs minister Seanna Markwort visited Lamont St to check up on them after their installation.
Seanna said while the town used to install Santa signs some of what was depicted on these new ones were a boat, a fish and a seagull to reflect life in Bermagui.
"I think they're really cool. Our school has gotten included in this and now we can show all the artworks to everyone in Bermagui," she said.
Abbie said each pupil at the school had painted one ornament to decorate the signs.
"It brings the Christmas spirit," she said.

Each of the Year 6 pupils had a message they wanted to share with the community about Christmas.
"I hope everyone gets shelter and food," Seanna said.
"I hope they get to have a fun time with family and friends," Jye said.
"Family is all that matters for Christmas," Abbie said.
