Have a Merry & Bright Christmas in Civic

As the days get longer and the holidays inch closer, the City Renewal Authority is bringing Christmas back to the city in 2019 with a fun and free program of activities in Garema Place.

Celebrate the launch of Christmas in Civic on Friday 6 December 2019, with the unveiling of a kaleidoscopic Christmas tree. See it shimmer during the day and light up at night.

As well as the new Christmas tree, there will be traditional log cabins with free activities such as cookie making and bauble decorating. You can even take a selfie with Santa, who will be out and about for the evening, and cool off with free slushies. For people who don’t have a tree at home yet, Santa’s Shaped Christmas Tree pop-up shop will be onsite where you can purchase a Christmas tree for pick up or order one for home delivery.

From Saturday 7 December is a fantastic program of Christmas activities in Garema Place and around the city centre, with events and activities such as letter writing and bauble making, lantern making, theatrical performances, a public art treasure hunt, Christmas choir performances, musical Christmas mashups and a truly unique visit from Santa.
