If you’re looking for festive activities for the whole family, check out what Docklands has in store to keep the kids (and you) smiling. Post a letter to Santa, catch some ‘snow’, or enjoy live entertainment all the way to Christmas Day!
Head to Docklands from 12 to 14 December for Jubilation, a three-day festival of fun events for the whole family. There’ll be daily live entertainment, a carousel, light installations, night markets, food trucks and, of course, visits from Santa. This fantastic free event proudly supports the hard work of Victoria’s volunteer firefighters.
Looney Tunes Christmas Show

Wonderland Fun Park
Wonderland Fun Park transforms into ‘Santa’s Christmas Spectacular’, with plenty of yuletide fun happening right up until Christmas Eve. Watch out for daily snowfalls, post your Christmas wish list and catch Santa’s Circus Spectacular Show at the Wonderland Spiegeltent Theatre.
Melbourne Star Observation Wheel
Take the kids on the ultimate carousel ride with a trip on the Melbourne Star for beautiful views in every direction and the chance to keep an eye out for Santa’s sleigh. Rides will be running from 1pm on Christmas Day as well.
