Christmas in July might be over soon, but that just brings us that little bit closer to the magic of Christmas itself. Follow the sound of sleigh bells to Melbourne’s Christmas Wonderland, a new Christmas event coming to Burnley Oval. This exciting Christmas paradise will feature multiple themed zones, activities, skating, food and more. Melbourne’s Christmas Wonderland will ring in the festive season from Friday November 25 to Saturday December 24.
Melbourne’s Christmas Wonderland
Go under the enormous big-top at Burnley Oval, and see it lit up with thousands of twinkling LED stars. There will be heaps of wonderful interactive experiences and activities to spread the Christmas cheer.
Play in Snow Land, and have fun with inflatable castles, a penguin mountain, a snow slide and a ball pit filled with 20,000 balls. And of course, there will be plenty of snow!
Take photos with Santa, make crafts in the Elf’s Workshop, listen to Mrs Claus tell stories, say hi to Rudolph, and meet other roving Christmas characters like The Grinch. Then, go roller skating in a Christmas-themed roller rink, write a letter to Santa and enjoy live stage show entertainment.
Visit Mrs Claus’ Bakery and decorate your own sweet treat, then try other food and drink onsite, like hot jam donuts, loaded fries, pulled pork rolls and freshly brewed coffee.
Standard tickets cost $28.50, and include two hours of unlimited festive fun. If you want to splurge a little, grab a limited VIP ticket at $75 per person for express entry, getting to the front of the line to visit Santa, a food voucher and a take home gift. A family ticket costs $100, and provides admission for four people. Children under 2 can enter for free.
