Christmas on the Surf Coast

Torquay Beach

Find your home away from home at Torquay Holiday Park and make the most of what Geelong and the Surf Coast have to offer over the Festive Season. Follow our guide to ensure you and your family have a wonderful Christmas on our beautiful coast!

Feel the Christmas Spirit in Geelong

Head down the road to Geelong where you’ll be stunned by the iconic Floating Christmas Tree, perfectly positioned along Eastern Beach. Standing at an impressive 25 metres tall, the tree sure is a sight to see, especially at night! The sound and light show runs for 6 minutes, every 15 minutes, all day, every day. Once you’ve had a look at the tree, take the short walk to City Hall to watch the Christmas Projections, displayed on the landmark building. You’re sure to leave Geelong feeling that little bit more Christmassy!

Experience the Best Christmas Light Display in Town

Nothing makes it feel more like Christmas than driving around town looking for the best Christmas light display! We’ve done the hard work for you and found the best spot in Torquay, Wave Crescent. Each and every year, the entire court lights up with colourful displays, perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Hop in the car and drive around the court, or park nearby and take a stroll past the displays on foot to see things up close and personal. Just remember to be mindful of social distancing rules and wear a mask if you can’t keep a safe distance from others.
