Activities abound this festive season

HOBART’S Christmas celebrations are already underway, with plenty to see and do this festive season.

See below a list of what’s happening in the City of Hobart in the lead up to Christmas.


Mawson Place Christmas tree:

The towering 14-metre tree structure will be on display at the waterfront throughout December, with late evenings being the best time to enjoy the tree’s twinkling lights.


Santa’s letterbox:

A magical letterbox will be available until 24 December at the Elizabeth Mall Information Booth for children to post their letters to Santa.

More information at hobartcity.com.au/santaletterbox.


Christmas wrapping:

By donating, you can get your present wrapped with a wide variety of paper and ribbons, with all funds going to the charity doing the wrapping on the day.

The service will operate in Elizabeth Mall from 14 to 24 December.


Parcel minding:

From 1 December to 24 December, for a donation, your Christmas purchases can be securely stored at the Elizabeth Mall Information Booth while you enjoy the city.

Funds raised will go to participating charities.


Park & Ride:

Running from 13 December to 24 December, the free park-and-ride shuttle will pick you up from the Regatta Grounds and take you straight into the heart of the city.


Community carols:

Six community carols events will be held in Hobart, New Town, West Hobart, Mount Stuart and Lenah Valley.

The events will be held from 14 to 16 December and include a mix of indoor and outdoor venues (hobartcity.com.au/christmascarols).
