Warm Trees is the largest knitted art installation in the world and will be held at the National Arboretum between 30th June and 5th August. Knitters from around Australia and overseas have contributed scarves to this annual event which are wrapped around trees to brighten up the forests during winter. This year, in partnership with the New Zealand High Commission, visitors will see the world's largest knitted kiwi, pohutukawa flowers and ferns decorating the entrance to the Village Centre and brilliant colours in groves of trees throughout the National Arboretum. Warm Trees is available to view between gate opening times of 7am to 5:30pm. The Visitor Centre is open between 9am and 4pm.
During the ACT school holidays, there will be a free Drop-In Knitting activity at the Visitors Centre for kids to knit scarves for the trees. This activity will be held from 7th July to 22nd July (excluding 10th July), between 10am to noon. Bring your own supplies or use what is available in the knitting circle.
