Fed Square

It is almost Christmas and once again and many beautiful light displays can be seen all over Melbourne. There is always something interesting to see at Federation Square and this year is no exception. It can get crowded at this popular location!


Not all the most interesting illuminations are in the central business district. Some people make a big effort and turn their homes into mini tourist attractions. There are even websites listing the best homes to visit and suggesting tour routes.


Flinders’ Street Station is an historic landmark worth a look any time of day. At this time of year and at twilight it is especially attractive. There is plenty of traffic around though, so you’ll need to watch your step.

Town Hall

Last, but not least, the Town Hall always puts on an amazing show. The nearby State Library and Princes Bridge are also lit up with colourful Christmas projections every night until Christmas.
