Christmas in Nillumbik


We are fast approaching the most wonderful time of the year and to help reignite the heartbeat of Nillumbik, Council has embarked on a magical journey with community members and businesses to deliver the Christmas in Nillumbik festive program and shop local campaign.

Celebrate with our calendar of events and activities put together by local community groups, organisations, schools and businesses.

The activities, designed to increase community connectivity at this time of year, have been supported with $20,000 in Council festive grants.

Activities include Santa visits to local parks with volunteers from the Eltham CFA, a community wreath making project, online Christmas carols, treasure hunts, Christmas lights and window displays, and craft workshops.

Community groups are also preparing hampers for vulnerable community members, older residents in aged-care facilities and our refugee community.

Shop in our Shire this Christmas and support our many local businesses. Their range of great offers, services and vouchers are sure to provide inspiration for the perfect Christmas gift.

If you are heading out to celebrate over the festive period, experience our many cafes and eateries or take advantage of our beautiful open spaces and unique places to visit across the Shire.

Don't forget to follow us on @VisitNillumbik on Facebook and Instagram for all the festive fun.
