Welcome to Stable on the Strand where our guests experience the Christmas Story of the birth of Jesus.

We invite you to come to Strand Park Townsville
to discover the true meaning of Christmas.
18 – 22 December 2017   5.30pm – 9.30pm

Engage with The Christmas Story characters in the exciting & vibrant Town of Bethlehem.  Stand in awe as you view the Nativity Scene – Mary, Joseph & baby Jesus at The Stable.  Enjoy entertainment for all ages and interactive activities for children.  All free!

Stable on the Strand is a way to celebrate Christmas each year.
It’s a family tradition.
It’s a place to feel the love, joy, peace and hope of Christmas.

Come and join us!

The Promise of Peace
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace.
Luke 2:14

Stable On The Strand each year adopts a theme. This year, the message crosses the thousands of years since it was first sung by the angels above Bethlehem.

The Promise of Peace is a vital message today for the nations of the world, our own country, our community, our families and for individual lives. It is a message for all – children, teens, adults and seniors – and relevant whether or not you are associated with a church and the Christian faith.

The theme encourages all people to consider why it was chosen and what it means – particularly in this present age when peace seems so far away.

The Promise of Peace is timely for our Christmas Festival and the soon-to-follow New Year. This is because Jesus Christ – baby, man, teacher and risen Saviour – is the central character in God’s peace plan.

May the Lord of Peace give you peace at all times and in every way.   2 Thessalonians 3:16

Countdown to Stable on the Strand 2017


For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God, The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6
