Christmas in Boroondara

We’re getting into the festive spirit early! This month you’ll notice special decorations beginning to festoon our City.

Magnificent Christmas trees will be adding a festive touch to the Hawthorn Arts Centre civic square and the Camberwell Library forecourt. If you’re looking for a way to give back this year, you can leave a book under the ‘book giving tree’ for children in need. The tree will be located inside the Camberwell Library near the children’s area.

Also, don’t forget we have 53 shopping centres in Boroondara that have everything you need this Christmas. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift, pieces to make your dining table spectacular or fresh produce to make mouth-watering meals, our shopping centres and markets have you covered.

Each night, beautiful light displays will illuminate the Hawthorn Arts Centre, Camberwell Town Hall, Kew Court House and the Camberwell Fresh Food Market (Riversdale Road entry).

Christmas Window Competition

Another perk of shopping locally this festive season is our annual Christmas Window Competition. Vote for your favourite shopfront window and go in the running for great prizes while supporting your local retailers.
