Scheduled on the first of December, you will be able to learn from inspiring business owners in a friendly and laid-back environment. This is a unique event not to be missed as the great atmosphere encourages people to collaborate, build friendships, connect, grow and learn together in the most relaxing way.

Gingerbread Village Melbourne Town Hall

Starting from the 1st of December and ending on the 24th, this jaw-dropping and sweet smelling Gingerbread Village by Epicure is back for the fifth year and operates in support for Make-A-Wish® Australia. The amazing displays are made from remarkable handmade gingerbread structures that will delight the young as well as all who are young at heart with its intricate details. This magnificent display is made under the watchful eyes of Deniz Karaca (Epicure’s Executive Pastry Chef) and his highly talented team.

Christmas at Central Park

This is a great family and community event scheduled to take place on the 5th of December. The area will be transformed into a bustling hub of children’s activities and carols performances for everyone to enjoy. This is a special 1-day only event and is guaranteed to get the whole family into the festive spirit! One of the must-sees is the Trash Test Dummies, which is an award-winning slapstick comedy trio. Santa is dropping by too for a visit, so remember to keep an eye out for the big man dressed in red!

The Process at Metanoia Theatre

Ever heard of Peter Wilkins’s quote “… a cry for change that all should hear …”? The Process is a bleak political satire that ruthlessly dissects the immigration policies of both the current Coalition government and previous Labour party with surprisingly hilarious results! Also known as the play about refugees in five dubious acts, it is directed by John Gauci and written by Ian Robinson. Told with a sense of poignancy and humour, The Process is one of the must-sees in Melbourne!

StereoSonic Music Festival Melbourne 2015

This is a hot favourite and it is making its return on December 5th, featuring artists such as DJ Peking Duk, Diplo and Snake. Regardless, this year’s line up is going to be a blast! The event is scheduled to begin from noon at 12pm and ends at 10pm – that makes ten hours of non-stop action!

Viva Cuba! Exhibition

This summer, LUMAS Melbourne cordially invites all art enthusiasts to check out the unrestrained joie de vivre, which were previously magnificent manors of Havana. Scheduled to begin on 3 December, the unique group exhibition showcases the island’s nostalgic charm as well as handpicked works of Larry Yust, Luigi Visconti and Werner Pawlok. Each work that is on display celebrates the atmosphere, light, colour and architecture of Cuba in ways that you have not thought before.

Stand Strong by Melbourne Singers of Gospel

Stand Strong by Melbourne Singers of Gospel is slated to celebrate the start of the festive season with their annual gala performance at James Tatoulis Auditorium. The performance showcases an eclectic program of both modern favourites and timeless classics. The concert event is directed by Dr Darren Wicks and will be accompanied by the cool jazz-blues sound of The Soul Train band.

Object Future III at Linden New Art

Happening throughout the month of December and all the way till February, the unusually-themed exhibition features both art and your everyday objects from concept to completion. Basically the exhibits focus on the process, which is an important aspect of design that is often overlooked. The event clearly illustrates the development of prototypes from initial ideas and the final product. Object Future III is curated by Dale Hardiman and Suzannah Henty, and the designers include Hamish Munro, Hugh Altschwager and Coco Flip.

Horror Movie Campout

This is an exciting event that is unlike other and will be held at Melbourne’s Point Cook. This will definitely be an experience of a lifetime for all horror fans as they will camp out and be immersed in a horror movie! The Horror Movie Campout is actually the first of its kind to happen in Melbourne. Did you know that Point Cook Homestead is rumoured to be haunted? But don’t worry, that house is located pretty far away from where you will be. 4D scare experiences and classic horror movie screenings are some of the things you can expect to find at this awesome campout!

December is going to be a blast for both tourists and locals who are visiting Melbourne. If you want to attend these events and many others, be sure to consider Melbourne coach hire as it will help you get around in the most convenient manner. You will never have to worry about public transport and the risk of getting stuck in traffic!
