Christmas Windows on Northcote Rise: Celebrating the Magic of an Australian Christmas

This holiday season, Northcote Rise has become a canvas of festive cheer, courtesy of the artistic prowess of Grace from North South Grace West.

Grace has breathed life into 20 windows along High Street, adorning them with a mesmerising Australian flora and birds Christmas theme. Each window is a celebration of the unique charm of the bush and skies of Australia.

This initiative, a collaboration between Grace and the Northcote Business Association, is a testament to our commitment to showcasing local talent and fostering a shared sense of joy. Grace’s windows not only illuminate Northcote Rise but also create festive warmth and connection.
