Your Guide to Christmas at Anchoridge
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The sun is shining, the end of year is approaching and the excitement of the year ahead is starting to build.
Embrace the festive spirit this season at Anchoridge. Read on to discover the best Christmas events, parties, workshops and kids activities happening all across December.
If you’re running a little behind this Christmas, fear not. There’s still time to grab yourself a lush, freshly cut pine tree at Holiday Christmas Trees in Waurn Ponds, right up until the 22nd of December. Because nothing beats the smell of a beautiful fresh tree.
If you find yourself braving the busy Geelong shopping centres this December, be sure to check out the 31 uniquely decorated trees currently brightening Little Malop Central, where local school students have been given the honour of decorating a tree with colour, lights and sparkle. See them from now until early January 2022.
Nothing says Christmas cheer like some bright lights. A popular event amongst locals, Adventure Park’s Christmas Festival of Lights is a must-do for any Geelong local. Combining a Christmas Festival, amusement park and a visual art exhibition, there is something for the whole family to enjoy.
Take in the glittery, interactive sculptures on display using a whopping 2.7 million lights! Write a letter to Santa and embrace your inner Christmas Spirit with the whole family.

Another popular local tradition is a visit to the Geelong Floating Christmas Tree, located on Geelong’s waterfront. Whilst it may be a beautiful sight during the day, the magic truly happens at night, with an interactive Sound and Light show played every 15 minutes between 8:30pm and midnight.
