Maldon in Winter

Wednesday 1st June - Wednesday 27th July 2016 

MIW 2016 brochure front page FINAL

 Maldon In Winter Festival 2016 - Its always tempting to stay at home and hibernate during the cold weather, but you really should grab a warm coat and hit the road for Maldon and its famous Winter Festival. Running during June and July, there's a wonderful range of events during Maldon In Winter to enjoy with family and friends.

Go for a day or stay for a weekend. There’s always a warm welcome in this beautiful old goldrush town. The strong Christmas tradition runs through the town with the local eateries putting on slap-up Christmas dinners with mulled wine. And from the beginning of the school holidays on Friday 24 June, the shops on High Street and Main Street will be lit up with Maldon's famous Christmas windows.

 

You can pick up the program in shops around town or at the Maldon Visitor Information Centre on 03 5475 2569.
