Main Square



A glittering Christmas wonderland featuring the Christmas Tree, Santa’s Workshop, the Fed Christmas Gulls and more!

Each Christmas, Fed Square is transformed into a glorious glittering wonderland, full of twinkling lights, the enormous 16 metre-tall Christmas Tree, Santa’s Workshop and more. And this year – we’ve pulled out all the stops to make it the best yet.

You can take a picture with Fred and Fifi our Fed Christmas Gulls – enormous light-up sculptures welcoming you to the Square, created specially by the team at A Blanck Canvas.

Get an ‘Elfie Selfie’ or take your picture next to the Fed Square letters that have had a snazzy festive make-over.

And of course, bring the fam to get your picture taken with the big guy in red.

Each week throughout the festive season, more exciting installations will be appearing, as if by magic, so we’d definitely recommend planning more than one trip to Christmas Square.

You won’t want to miss being able to invite a special person to swing on the brand-new Bell Swings with you, as you gaze upward to the stunning Christmas tree, and whisper your Christmas wishes to each other.

We welcome you to explore all the joy, magic and awe-inspiring beauty of this year’s Christmas Square.

Santa's Workshop
Past Event
Ho-ho-ho, Melbourne! Merry Christmas! Come and visit Santa and his Elves, as he tinkers away in his Melbourne workshop, making toys and presents for the big day. Santa is a very busy man at this time of the year, surrounded by workshop tools and machinery, so he can’t invite children to sit down and have a chat. But don’t fret! The jolly Elves are ready and waiting to introduce you to the man in red. Santa will happily give a friendly wave and even pose for a photo, from a COVID-safe distance. We don’t have a professional photographer on site, so there is no need to book in to see Santa. Just come along with your own photography device during Santa’s workshop hours to take a picture with Santa. Santa’s Workshop hours Early season operation: Saturday 13 November–Wednesday 1 December Santa’s hours: daily, from 10.00am – 12.00pm and 1:00pm – 3:00pm Peak season operation: Thursday 2 December–24 December Open to public: daily, 10:00am – 11:00pm Santa’s hours: daily, from 10:00am – 12:00pm and 1:00pm – 3:00pm.

Chanukah - Pillars of Light
Past Event
A little bit of light can dispel a lot of darkness. Pillars of Light, in celebration of Chanukah, is providing Melbournians with an opportunity to come together over a multicultural celebration, focusing on what unites us as a city. Each evening features a bespoke program highlighting the core precepts of connection and collaboration through guest speakers, dignitaries, artistic performers, cultural groups, sports people and more, who’ll be invited to light the menorah, bringing together our varied communities through hope, positivity, love and light. LiveNation, Australia’s premier music promoters, have partnered with Pillars of Light to source local and known multicultural, faith and Indigenous artists that will perform during the festival. To join book your tickets now for a phenomenal display of multiculturalism and diversity in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD at Fed Square or watch the live stream of each evening below.
