The Atrium at Crown Towers Hotel in Southbank, Melbourne, puts on a Festive Season show every year. This year, the atrium has a spectacular animatronic, lighting and musical display every 30 minutes.

Included is a15 metre 24-hour fully lit Christmas tree, giant Christmas baubles suspended from the ceiling, while Jumbo-sized ornaments at eye level pop open to reveal all of Santa's friends and the merry old gentleman himself. All of this to the strains of well-known carols of the Season.

It is kitsch deluxe, but the kids (and many adults!) thrive on it and all of the shows seem to be very well-attended. Just keep the kiddies well away from the pokie machines in the casino...
