Sunbury has its very own Christmas wonderland.

Resident Kylie Crowley has decked her backyard with Christmas decorations and lights galore for visitors to venture through what she calls ‘Christmas on Reservoir’.

“I thought of wanting to do a Santa’s house out the back … it eventuated from there,” Ms Crowley said.

“Once we started we couldn’t stop.”

Ms Crowley has set up various stations along the side and back of her house to reflect Christmas traditions and themes.

“When you walk down the side of the house, that is the Grinchmas area,” she said.

“Then you go into the Aussie Christmas area. We have a Disney window set up … then you go up to the back with all the inflatables and a Santa where you can stick your head through for photos.

“We have a gingerbread area, a woodlands area, Santa’s house and a winter wonderland.”

A self-confessed Christmas enthusiast, Ms Crowley has spent every weekend since August decking the halls and is already looking forward to decorating her house next year.

Christmas on Reservoir has been opened since the end of last month and Ms Crowley said residents are already flocking to view her extravagant set-up.

“I have a Facebook page called Christmas on Reservoir. We are up to 350 followers and we only started last month,” she said.

“Everyone loves it and are thankful that we are doing it. The adults are loving it more than t he k ids.”

Christmas on Reservoir can be visited every Friday and Saturday night in the lead-up to Christmas.

It’s at 206 Reservoir Road, Sunbury.“We just want people to come and enjoy it,” Ms Crowley said
