From mid-November, you’ll notice special decorations beginning to festoon our City. 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).
Inside Camberwell Library, you’ll also find the Book Giving Tree near the children’s area. If you’re looking for a way to give back this year, you can leave a new book under the tree for children in need.
Christmas Window Competition
Another perk of shopping locally this festive season is our Christmas Window Competition.
Retailers across the City will be dressing up their shopfront windows with colourful Christmas displays, making our unique shopping centres a magical place to shop this festive season.
By participating you can go in the running to win one of 5 shopping vouchers worth $200 each and support your local traders.
To participate, simply post a picture of your favourite store’s Christmas window decorations on Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #boroondarachristmas and mention the name of the store.
The competition will run from Friday 29 November to Friday 20 December 2019.
