Wilson Fernandez the creator/artist at St. Elizabeth's Parish has been creating the nativity crib scenes to capture the wonder and essence of Christmas and the birth place of baby Jesus for several years. In 2013, the event marked the 10th anniversary and was a moment of a major milestone since inception.

The Australia's traditional nativity scene display has become so popular that it has drawn crowd from all over and all walks of life. The nativity scene has not only grown in display size but the attention to details is worth noting .

Wilson uses various natural material like soils, clay, straw, plants and barks to give the nativity scene the most traditional and authentic impression of being in Bethlehem of the Christ era. He artistically creates the village and township with handmade huts, stables, buildings, bridges, palaces, houses and temples surrounded with mountains, rocks, lakes and rivers etc. The nativity scene is special because it has a theme each week that tells the Christmas story.

In week 1, the scene would have a township with regular villagers, traders, travellers, farmers, animals etc. carrying out normal life. Week 2 onwards, the entry of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, no room at the Inn but manage to stay in a stable, birth of Jesus Christ, angel announces good news, shepherds visit, three wise men visit Baby Jesus & the last scene is the holy family flees to Egypt.

Wilson's work is regarded as Australia's largest and best nativity scene by the community, visitors, and parishioners of Melbourne and other Archdioceses. So come along with your family and friends.
