Looking for an outing with a difference? Why not pack a picnic and venture out on an exciting outdoor treasure hunt … in search of your local Christmas Tree on the Sunshine Coast community Christmas tree trail.
Starting at the beginning of December, the Sunshine Coast Council
officially turns on the Christmas lights on specific tall trees in and around the region, lighting up our night skies with spectacular coloured ornaments and finery.
From Caloundra to Coolum, from Woombye to Kenilworth, each and every tree features LED lighting, in keeping with the Council's continued commitment to sustainability.
The majority of these very impressive-looking trees are located in parks with their very own picnic spots and in some instances, even BBQ's. As an added bonus, some of the parks have kid's playgrounds, allowing families much-needed time to relax and enjoy special quality time together.
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, but are nonetheless spectacular trees in their own right. Find your local Christmas tree from the alphabetical list below.
