Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

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.
