Within the Sunshine Coast Council, there are a total of twenty locations with beautifully adorned Christmas trees, all adding to the spirit and good cheer of Christmas in our local communities. All of these spectacularly decorated trees use LED lighting, ensuring the Council's ongoing commitment to sustainability within the region, is adhered to.

Most of the Christmas Tree Trail will be illuminated from Saturday 1 December, with certain local communities hosting specific events to officially turn the lights on as part of the Christmas festivities. By Monday 10 December all of the Council's splendidly decorated trees will be shining bright, lighting up our night skies with gorgeous colours and ornaments.

If parents and grandparents are looking for a fun and exciting outing to keep the children amused and away from digital screens, why not pack a picnic hamper and venture out on an adventure of a different kind - discovering the beautifully enhanced Christmas Trees on the Sunshine Coast Council's Christmas Tree Trail. Most of these stunning Christmas Trees are in parks with undercover picnic shelters and BBQs and in a lot of instances, the added bonus of playgrounds, allowing families the time and opportunity to relax and enjoy quality time with family.

Please note that the trees on the Christmas Tree Trail are not specifically fir trees or traditional Christmas trees as we remember them from childhood.
