A magical Australian Christmas display for all the family
This year the Myer Christmas windows are a celebration of all things Aussie, from iconic Luna Park to a backyard barbecue, paddle pools and a Hills Hoist. The traditional windows are an automated 3D display based on a stunning children's book by Australian author, Corinne Fenton and illustrator Marjorie Crosby-Fairall called, "One Christmas Eve."

"One Christmas Eve" is a magical story based in 1968, about a young girl named Bella when she visits her family for Christmas in St Kilda, Melbourne. Bella and her grandpa visit Luna Park together and Bella dreams that she flies away on a magic carousel horse across the night sky.

The Christmas windows themselves are filled with amazing details from the story including 5000 figurines which took an impressive 17 000 hours to create. Be sure to look out for Santa and his reindeer flying across the sky and teddy enjoying a ride on the backyard swingset.
