The good news for the day has to be that the Myer Christmas window is back on track and traditions can continue, so make merry like you mean it. Visit the Windows from 14 Nov to 24 Dec 2020 between the hours of 7.30 to 10.30pm at 314-336 Bourke St in the city. The theme has been under wraps, so you'll just have to head down and find out for yourself. Meanwhile, feast your eyes on a nostalgic look back at 65 years of magic.
Myer is making sure the windows are a joyful and safe experience for all, so please make sure you are keeping Covid safe with a 1.5 metres physical distance from the people around you. Make sure you have a lot of time and patience on hand, along with the spirit of Christmas as lines are bound to be longer and take much more time than usual.
Seeing Santa Claus at Santa Land also requires booking, so be sure to secure your spot for time and a photo with Santa. If you're looking for behind the scenes Christmas Casual Opportunities, see here.
It goes without saying that Myer is the embodiment of all things Christmas during the festive season. Take the stress out of wondering what to get with the gift finder. Food Hampers are a great idea that everyone loves to receive, filled with their favourite things to eat. It's the place to shop all things Christmas, including magical trees and accessories. Sometimes you just have to walk through wonderland and let the magical atmosphere transport you to great memories and the nostalgia Christmas evokes.
Make the most of your time in the CBD and maximise your day with a visit to Federation Square's Sky Castle for a multi-sensory kaleidoscopic fever dream. A motion-activated sculpture that makes your every movement a melodic xylophone soundscape stimulating colour changes as you go through.
The City of Melbourne is also putting it on for the month of November with a large-scale horticultural display at the Free Urban Blooms display dotted all over the CBD. Rediscover iconic landmarks, laneways and boulevards in full bloom from Arts Centre Melbourne to the North Melbourne Post Office, Lygon St to Hosier Lane and a dozen blossoming locations in between. Have a meal at participating eateries in Fed Sq and get free parking at The Square for the month of November 2020.
