Christmas Wonderland

The much loved Christmas event that takes over Nerima Gardens each year is back with 50,000 lights and three new installations.  Tickets are still available for later timeslots, earlier sessions are now full.  Nerima Gardens in Queens Park will again be transformed into a magical wonderland with illuminated trees, thousands of glittering lights and more.  A new COVID Safe Event format will be in place for Christmas Wonderland this year, which means the event will be ticketed.  Proceeds raised will be distributed to Ipswich charities. A nominal fee of $5 per person, $15 for a family of four or $20 for a family of five has been set.
