The most wonderful time of the year has come early at Luna Park
Christmas in Australia is strange. We’re expected to eat roast dinner and wear Santa suits, but the mercury is often well past 30 degrees. Which is why Luna Park is celebrating Christmas in July these school holidays.
From June 30 to July 15 (that is, the Victorian winter school holidays), the seaside amusement park will be celebrating Christmas six months early with festive lights, bunting, snow and the big, jolly man himself.
Visit the giant Christmas tree or say hello to Santa, who will be sitting in his merry sleigh every weekend. Snap a selfie with one of Santa’s elves – if you’ve been good so far this year they’ll even give you a chocolate for your trouble.
Soak up some snow in the Christmas domes or take littlies for a ride on the new, trackless Betty Choo Choo train. Christmas in July at Luna Park is on every day of the school holidays from 11am. Normal ticket prices apply.
