There’s sunshine and all the Christmas feels in Freo as we slide into December and the summer holiday season. This year is extra special as we celebrate the opening of Walyalup Koort with a program of events and activities celebrating all things Christmas.

The 12 Days of Christmas program is a collection of events every Thursday to Sunday from 2—19 December.

DJs and Deckchairs brings a musical vibe to a lunchtime crowd in Walyalup Koort. On weekends there are lots of activities for families with face painting, workshops for kids and a visit from Santa.
