Summer Backyard

Take a break from the Christmas shopping and relax in the Summer Backyard.

Rest your feet as you relax by the Water Labyrinth in the comfy shaded chairs, while the kids play in the water on a hot Summer’s day; then dry them off with the free towel-service that will be available! 

There will be Christmas workshops, free gift wrapping, activities and a bag-minding service, so you can relax without worry. Or perhaps you want to go to lunch without the hassle of shopping bags? Just register them at the booth and collect them later. A DJ will feature from 12noon to 4pm* with a few other surprises in store. 

Plus get involved in green screen magic when you choose your own Christmas scene and snap a fun photo with Magic Christmas Pics Saturday and Sunday until 22 December.

Once the Christmas rush is over, the Summer Backyard will continue until Australia Day with the DJ tunes, seating, shade and activities available. 

Presented by Forrest Chase.
