Christmas Decorations

Wondering where we got our Christmas concept from? Head out to the retail precinct at Darling Quarter and look up! 

The concept, Crackin’ Community Christmas, plays on our nostalgic love for bonbons and the joy that comes from celebrating with them at Christmas Dinner. Take a close look at the Christmas crackers and you’ll delight in some classic cracker-humour as you read the terrible jokes on each of the cracker tags; a groan worthy punch line that has come to be expected with the tradition.

Prefer to drive? Pre-book your parking.

The giving doesn’t stop here! Pay a $10 flat rate (per day) when you pre-book your parking through the Wilson Parking website using the code DQXMAS2020. 

Flat rate fee, valid between Saturday 5 December – Sunday 21 December 2020. 

All classes are run by COVID-safe businesses. Please see each individual event for specific COVID measures. 

We can’t wait to see you at Darling Quarter and we’re looking forward to celebrating Christmas with you!
