Christmas in Docklands

05 Dec 2017

By Shantelle-Ann Marquis and Karina Schulz Wharwood

Christmas is fast approaching and Docklands will bring on a variety of Christmas activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Ice skating with Santa at O’Brien Group Arena

This Christmas, O’Brien Group Arena presents ice-skating with Santa.

Bringing a new experience to kids, they can meet and greet Santa while having fun on ice. From December 2-24 the doors will be open on the weekends from 11am-3pm.

Community Christmas Event

Library at the Dock Community Christmas will be celebrated from 10am-3pm on December 9. This is the biggest day on The Dock’s end-of-year calendar.

Inviting friends, families and local residents to participate in a joyous and vibrant event, local community groups, library services and Lendlease have organised fun festivities for all.

The anchoring event is Christmas Bake Off, where residents are invited to whip up their favourite Christmas baking recipes and share their desserts with others. Small token prizes are awarded for taste, decoration and healthy choice.

Other activities include:

  • Melbourne Symphony Orchestra;
  • Kids craft;
  • Children workshop at Saluministi;
  • Open door singers choir;
  • Laughter Club; and
  • EuRaw film screening.
  • NewQuay Christmas projections

Glittering Christmas light projections will bring Victoria Harbour to life. From December 1-25, a light show will be displayed between 9pm and 11pm.

This is perfect for those looking to have a night out by the water or with the family. The festive and colourful display will be projected on the Silence sculptures along NewQuay Promenade. This aims to create a different way for people to experience Docklands as well as spreading Christmas cheer.

Wonderland Junior Fun Park

Docklands’ Wonderland Junior Fun Park is transformed into a Christmas village at the heart of The District Docklands.

The dodgem cars, carousel, mini swing ride and other carnival classics will bring the ultimate fun to young children, who will also receive a free gingerbread man with unlimited rides purchased.

Melbourne Star

Melbourne’s skyline will be lit up with a kaleidoscope of colours with a Christmas LED lightshow.

From December 13-24, the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel will be running shows from 6pm until late. Whether on the wheel or watching it from outside, it is something everyone can enjoy.

Light House

The Light House at 888 Collins St displays a light show from dusk to midnight, seven days a week, every day of the year.

However, in festive preparation a 12 Days of Christmas Light Show will be displayed for the whole family to enjoy.

Using lights that are 100 per cent powered by solar panels, the facade of the building will run a light show that lasts for 10 minutes.

The best view of the building and its light show is viewed from Buluk Park. Another curated New Year’s Eve light show will also light up on December 31.
