The capital of Tasmania, Hobart is a fashionable and historical little place with a real flair for Christmas! Home to the Myer Christmas Pageant, Tasmania's largest Christmas parade, Hobart really comes alive late November each year as tens of thousands turn out for the festive spectacle.



In 2015 over the street became a stage for 55 colourful entries from schools, clubs, businesses, churches, cultural groups and local communities. It's a cherished event on the Hobart calendar and a draw-card for tourism during the Christmas period.

 

Not to be outdone, the city and surrounding suburbs are also home to an array of Christmas light displays each year as the locals don their houses and businesses with fairy lights, rope lights, inflatables, large and small hand-made displays, Santa visits and much much more!

 

Finally there is the city's Carols by Candlelight event. Chocked full of traditional carols and your favourite Christmas songs. Held during the middle of December in the stunning St. David Park, it contains live performances by local talent and guest stars, including Santa Claus himself!
