Majestic Moreton Bay fig trees are some of Sydney's oldest natural treasures but for Noël Sydney - they will emerge from the night, illuminated by light.

The towering digital Christmas trees, standing up to 10 metres tall, glow from above and between them.

In the forest you can quench your thirst at the exceptional beverage stalls and indulge in delicious local and regional delicacies from one of over 30 market stalls and pop-up offerings.
