The gingerbread village will be on display at the Melbourne Town Hall until Christmas Eve.
Under the guidance of Chef Deniz Karaca, the village has been built entirely out of gingerbread and includes iconic Melbourne landmarks such as The Arts Centre, MCG and The Melbourne Town Hall as well as a Fairytale Castle and moving Wind and Water Mill.
Visitors will be able to find miniature chefs getting up to mischief, AFL players at the MCG, shopkeepers, animals as well as fruit and vegetables.
There’s even a train that runs all the way around the Village. With plenty of treats for the kids, the Gingerbread Village by Epicure is sure to add smiles to everyone’s festive season.
Officially launched by Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, the Gingerbread Village will be open to the public from 11am to 6pm every day.
