Most people like Christmas. And then there are the people who LOVE it.

Sure, it’s still technically six months away, but with Melbourne facing frosty, one-degree mornings, it only feels right that we warm ourselves with a little holiday cheer.

On the weekend of August 25 and 26, the Ambiance stall at the Queen Victoria Market will host an ornate Christmas showcase displaying the what’s-what of Christmas decorations for the upcoming season.

Ambiance Christmas Showcase

  • The Ambiance homeware store in the Queen Victoria Market is back with its annual Christmas showcase on August 25 and 26
  • It’ll be displaying the most exciting new Christmas decor for the 2023 season
  • The event will be going down on August 25 and 26 at 509 Elizabeth St

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

Our suggestion? Put on a fur coat and a fuzzy scarf, grab a hot cocoa or a cup of mulled mine fromthe market and pretend the holidays have come early.

If you’re planning an elaborate display for Christmas 2023, it’s the perfect place to get your hands on some gear (and well and truly beat the crowds). Ambiance’s range of heirloom products includes the famous Mark Roberts elves, collectable Cloisonné ornaments, and specific Australia-themed decor.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the annual event draws in fans of old Saint Nick from all across our fair country. What’s more, the store is offering 15% off as well as a $300 door prize.
