Running all through the school holidays, both kids and adults will be transported to a magical winter wonderland. During the day, colourful decorations will line the Main Street and as well as all the usual fun things to do, there will be plenty of additional hands-on activities.
Don't miss seeing Sovereign Hill turn into a snowy white winter wonderland with various snow times throughout the day.
As night begins to fall, Main Street will come to life with twinkling lights and sparkling grand-scale Christmas images projected along the facades of the buildings. The light show will be on from approximately 5.45-7pm each evening.
Other activities will include a fun pantomime at the Victoria Theatre where Little Red Riding Hood meets Robin Hood with hilarious consequences. Don't miss the show times at 11.00am, 2.15pm and 4.00pm.
Sure to delight the younger kids, Victorian shadow puppets will tell the tale of St Nick a "jolly old elf" also at the Victoria Theatre.
There will be plenty of food options available, including a European Christmas fare Marquee with delicious goodies such as traditional German Bratwurst or a chicken schnitzel and chips accompanied by a warm mulled wine.
