Christmas tree with red and gold bubbles

Christmas in Greater Dandenong

December is a wonderful time to be out and about in Greater Dandenong. It’s a time when the end-of-year Christmas cheer brings magic to our favourite venues, streets and shopping precincts. However you celebrate the festive season, take the time to embrace the joy and festivity of our community at this special time of year.

Christmas Decorations

To support retail activity and visitation in the City of Greater Dandenong over the Christmas and New Year period, Council delivers a program of Christmas decorations in Dandenong, Noble Park and Springvale.

A feature is the large scale decorations installed in each activity centre.

Huge Christmas trees 6 to 9 metres tall brighten Harmony Square, Multicultural Place and Noble Park’s Douglas Street.

The Springvale Community Hub is a new location for 2020, with a giant 7m Santa and Reindeer taking pride of place at this fantastic community facility.

In Dandenong, a new “Waterloo Star” decoration is in Langhorne Place and the Santa and Reindeer awning decoration is back on the corner of Lonsdale and Clow Streets.

These large decorations are complemented with a range of smaller ones in all activity centres, including Christmas themed tree and pole surrounds, decorations on public seating, metal Christmas trees in Springvale and “pole and dove” installations in Noble Park.

In Dandenong, a festive mural is on the steps leading from Lonsdale Street to Harmony Square, and Dandenong Library’s display windows showcase a life-size Nativity Scene and decorative designs.

The easing of COVID restrictions also allows the return of roving performer appearances in each of the activity centres in the lead up to Christmas.
