If you subscribe to the motto of 'go big, or go home' when it comes to Christmas decorations, here's your excuse to hightail it out to Geelong this festive season. The dazzling Christmas Festival of Lights is returning to Adventure Park Geelong for its 2022 instalment, blazing bright from Friday, November 18–Sunday, January 1, 2023.

Pegged to be the largest Christmas lights display in the entire state — and the family-friendly fest's biggest to date — it's set to feature more than three million lights and 1000 colourful light installations.

The Geelong theme park will come alive most nights (November 18–19, November 25–December 24, December 26-January 1), with its main attraction being a two-kilometre walking trail weaving right through the luminous festive light shows.

There'll also be rides for young and old, Santa visits, craft stations, and a swag of live entertainment ranging from roving Christmas carolers to an interactive acrobatic show. Plus, while you wander, you can tap into more of that festive spirit with a variety of food truck eats and Christmas-themed cocktails.

Ticketing for the fest is based on height — kids under 90cm will get in for free, while punters between 90–120cm will pay $32.50 and those above 120cm can enter for $39.50.
