Besides the display windows, there are Christmas activities for the entire family.

After your Myer Christmas Windows experience head up to Level 6 of the Myer Bourke Street building to visit the Disney maze and Santaland on Level 7.

You'll find the maze in the Myer Mural Hall, through the Giftorium on the left side as you exit the lifts.

The maze is for little ones really, as it's not much of a maze when you can see above it! It does make for some cute photo opportunities.

Mrs Claus sits on the chair occasionally and when she vacates you have a nice plush chair with a Christmas backdrop for a Santa photo without the Santa.

If you're after a Santa photo WITH Santa then head to Santaland and take a ride on the (animated) Santaland Express!

The Giftorium is also the place to treat yourself to a spot of Christmas shopping – hunt for the perfect dress, find something for the relative that has everything or spoil everyone you love with gifts that speak to them.

How the Myer windows got their start

The Myer Christmas Windows have been a source of joy for families for many years.

Beginning all the way back in 1956, Freddie Asmuseen – the head of display at the time – flipped the script and replaced the usual gift arrangement with a story very much dear to everyone’s hearts. The Olympics! Starring Santa and a handful of Olympians, the new dream team could be seen hanging out in Santa’s sleigh.

Since then, Myer has kept the tradition alive.

Thanks to tales like the Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, Little Dog and the Christmas Wish and Alice in Wonderland, people have come to expect magic and wonder from Myer.

And every year, they deliver.

Sneak downtown this November and December and hunt for hidden secrets in the displays, letting your little ones dive into their imaginations… without spending a cent.
