This year, the centrepiece of Melbourne's Christmas Festival, in a new location within Federation Square will be bigger and better than ever.
Federation Square's St Paul's court will be transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland offering festive fun for the whole family.
The jolly man in red will of course be in residence, found underneath the new supersized 16 metre tall Christmas tree; take a free photo with him as he waits to hear what you want in your stocking this year.
Come and visit the 'Be Present' Snow Dome and be filmed singing along to your favourite Xmas Carol with your friends and family. Share your video online and go in the running to win a $1000 Emporium voucher.
And every night from 9pm be amazed at the absolutely incredible light show the new tree will treat the city too.
Presented by City of Melbourne and supported by Federation Square and TAC.
