Summer SEAson Festival

Cresta Shopping Centre is transforming into an under-the-sea marine explorations exhibition in the lower level, Barnyard Court between 16 – 24 December 2021. Here, you and your loved ones will be able to learn all about marine life and how to care for our oceans. Enjoy a wide range of exciting activities, including:

  • Kiddies’ crafts
  • AR and VR experiences
  • Giant octopus jumping castle
  • Seating and eating area for parents

The CrestAquariam Fish Tank will make them fall in love with the over 34 species of sub-tropical fish, transporting them to a relaxing and peaceful place. It would be good to teach children about the importance of protecting the marine environment at the Under The Sea Marine Exploration Exhibition at Cresta, which provides a realistic experience with animatronic models, so you'll feel you're on the Coast while you explore this exhibit. We are reminded of the beauty and majesty of marine life and our responsibility to protect it through these exhibitions. As a result, we become more aware of our impact and footprint, and we can teach the children the importance of picking up after themselves and keeping our shores clean and safe for us and the marine life.

The activation will be taking place Monday to Saturday between 09:00 – 19:00 and Sundays and Public Holidays between 09:00 – 18:00.


FREE Gift Wrapping!

Cresta Shopping Centre has thought of everything this year and even takes the stress out of gift-wrapping for you. So, now you have time to finally bake those gingerbread cookies. The Cresta Brand Ambassadors will wrap your gifts for FREE if you show your till slip proving you purchased your gifts at a Cresta store. Three gift-wrapping stations are located in the mall, so there is no need to wait in line.

Don't forget to share some Christmas cheer with the needy while spoiling yourself and your loved ones. Cresta partners with Kindness like Confetti and Mini Miracles to support new mothers after giving birth. Donate basic necessities like clothing and toiletries for mums and babies. Collection points are located at the gift wrapping stations.
