Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

The festive season comes early with this winter wonderland

Sovereign Hill will be transformed these school holidays as the outdoor museum hosts a program of Christmas-themed activities. During the day, kids can get creative making angels and baubles, while adults can enjoy street theatre and carols. For the first time the festivities will continue into the night with a Christmas Wonder Lights show, created by the same team who brought White Night to Melbourne. Main Street will be lit up at 5.30pm with large-scale projections on 12 of its Victorian-style buildings. There will be a night market every evening, as well as an appearance by Saint Nicholas.

Sovereign Hill is a 90-minute drive from Melbourne and there is free parking on site.
