Bredbo Christmas Barn
Once upon a time, not too long ago, there was a shop in Woden Plaza called Unique Boutique. During the year it was filled with all sorts of things to decorate your home, and as the end of the year approached it turned into a wonderland of sparkly Christmas decorations. Unique Boutique closed down, but it now operates as the Bredbo Christmas Barn, in a little village about an hour south of Canberra, on the Monaro Highway towards Cooma.
Definitely worth a visit if you're in the market for a new tree (even an upside down one to hang from the ceiling), a reindeer dressed as something like a cross between Marie Antoinette and a Can-Can dancer (in several sizes, the largest of which was taller than my 10 year old), Disney ornaments, birds with real feathers (including partridges, although I didn't see any pear trees), Nativity scenes, and much much more. But sadly you're too late this year - they've closed up today, and won't be open again until June.
