A festive feast for your senses is what you will experience when Tramsheds dining precinct 'unwraps' Christmas to celebrate the holiday season. Immerse yourself in markets, workshops and more as an enchanting canopy of lights brings Yuletide cheer.
Santa will be popping down from the North Pole and visiting each Saturday from 12-2pm. Spot him as he roams around Tramsheds and grab a complimentary photo, which will be emailed to your inbox. Too easy.
Look out for the floating wreath in Artisan Lane too. It's an Instagram-worthy beauty created by design studio, Loose Leaf, and consists of 10,000 blooms of Xerochrysum (everlasting daisies native to Australia). Visitors are free to interact with this artwork suspended in mid-air.
The Christmas Artisan Markets will run every Wednesday (4pm-9pm) and Saturday (9am-3pm) for you to pick up everything from handmade crafts to presents for your pup, with all stallholders' fees from the Wednesday markets being donated to the Make a Wish Foundation. Restaurant, bar and wine store Bodega 1904 will also provide their Christmas donuts with cherry-spiced custard for a limited time on Wednesdays.
Pop-up vendors Claycups, Herbs and Heart, Joy Succulents, Annie Makes Cakes, Bianca Beers, Dough My Dear, MzIllustrations, Ayana Jewellery, Petal Met Sugar, The Sophisticated Pet, Sweet Health and many more will be present over the course of Unwrap Christmas. Contact Tramsheds on 02 8398 5695 if you are interested in the dates specific vendors will attend.
An array of activities and workshops are available, from cooking delicious stuff to creating floral Christmas items, as follows –
Making pasta with Italian restaurant, Flour Eggs Water
Making burrata and bocconcini with Omnom Cheese whilst you sip on a glass of bubbles
Tramsheds is located at 1 Dalgal Way, Forest Lodge. It utilises part of the area of the old Harold Park racecourse and is easy to get to with the light rail stop of Jubilee Park only a few minutes walk away. Alternatively, bus routes 431 and 433 from the city will get you there.
If driving, parking is now free at Tramsheds for the first 2 hours and for any visit after 6pm.
So 'unwrap' the silly season with light displays, wreath installations, bespoke restaurant menus, cocktail happy hours and all of the above fun.
