If you haven’t seen how they turned the town hall and Federation Square into a big and bright Christmas town, then you’re probably living under a rock. From the Christmas carols chiming through the Federation Bells, to bright stories illuminating the town hall, to a giant Lego Christmas tree displayed in the City Square; Melbourne is coming alive with Christmas cheer. Be part of the Melbournian holiday spirit this December with fun, funky, festive, and (sometimes) free events all month long:

Love Your Local Markets
There are loads more to see, do, and eat in and around Melbourne! But with the amount of shopping and the number of places you’ll be going to in a day, you really wouldn’t want to take public transportation. Don’t have a car of your own? No worries, just book your Melbourne car rental, drive to multiple destinations, and keep your shopping bags safe and sound. Happy Holidays!
