Amazing! The square is nicely set up whilst not being over the top and the town hall's display is just spectacular. The colours are so vivid and the story captivating. A must see if there around Christmas.

Not much of a "City Square" compared to old European cities but a good location for visitors in terms of close proximity to major attractions in Melbourne such as St. Paul's Cathedral, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square, etc.
