Shops on Show


Shops on Show was a huge success last year and is returning 1-15 December. 

Locals are encouraged to shop local and vote for their favourite Christmas shop window by visiting registered shops and vote by ‘liking’ the window photo via Council’s Facebook and Instagram pages. The 3 most "liked" Christmas window shops will win some fabulous prizes. Shoppers who vote online for their favourite festive season shop window will also go into a draw to share in over $7000 in prizes.

Council highly encourages local shops and hospitality businesses to consider being involved in the upcoming competition. You don’t have to be experienced visual merchandisers or set designers! – just display some Christmas spirit, decorate your street shopfront window with tinsel, balls etc.

Hint – lights tend to be really effective, and the night shots of the Christmas windows were the most “voted for” last year.

Get involved! Don’t miss your opportunity to win some great prizes, and get free publicity for your business and promotion of your shopping precinct.
