Yule Love Christmas in Moorabool 2022


It is almost that time of year again and Moorabool Shire is once again getting in the festive spirit with Christmas trees and decorations going up across the shire.

We hope Santa will also make an appearance in Bacchus Marsh and Ballan main street and further details will be posted on the Christmas website.

Spending local and supporting local business is especially important at this time of year. Moorabool Shire will again run a Support Local Buy Local social media campaign linking to our new local businesses and jobs portal golocalmoorabool.com.au

Please see further details below about our Christmas activations. This information will appear on our website and in social media. 

Moorabool’s Mega Christmas Trees!

In December visit our Christmas trees in the main streets of Bacchus Marsh, Ballan, Gordon and Blackwood, and Greendale.
