Boxing Day

Boxing Day is a massive public holiday in Australia, and the best thing about being in Melbourne is that there are so many options for how to spend your day.

From sporting events, cinema releases, shopping sprees or family BBQs, Boxing Day is considered by Melbournians to be one of the best days of the year.

Boxing Day is undoubtedly one of Melbourne’s most fun days to shop. Every year, on the 26th of December, shops fling their doors open to thousands of customers for the biggest retail sales of the year. Many shops open earlier than usual and remain open late to allow shoppers to cash in on the sales. Some must-visit places for the best Boxing Day sales include DFO Moorabbin, Chadstone Shopping Centre, Highpoint Shopping Centre, Westfield Southland, Doncaster Shopping Town and Eastland Shopping Centre.

For sports lovers, head to the MCG for the Boxing Day Test. Aussie fans and many other enthusiastic cricket fans worldwide enjoy this iconic cricket game. The test match is part of the 5-match Ashes series with England every four years.

For cinema lovers, head to the movies and catch the biggest blockbusters of the year, released on Boxing Day.

Boxing Day at the movies is the busiest day of the year, where millions of dollars are spent on catching these new releases, with many world premieres scheduled for this day.

After a busy Christmas Day, Australians often spend Boxing Day having a backyard BBQ or heading down to the beach for relaxation. Although Boxing Day is a public holiday, most shops will be open, and public transport will run on a Sunday timetable.
