Take a walk in this dazzling forest of trees
A visit to the Christmas Tree Festival at Willunga is a beautiful way to start the season of advent. This year Willunga Uniting Church hosts its 14th annual Christmas Tree Festival on Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th November. This annual community event showcases the creativity of local groups and individuals who submit decorated trees.

The theme for this year is 'Hopes and Dreams'. Innovative themes from over the years have included: Past Present and Future, Christmas Around the World and Our Advent Festival. Over 50 decorated trees will be on display in Bethany Hall and the Willunga Uniting Church. The neighbouring Bell Paddock will be breaming with food and craft stalls on the Saturday. See the historic hay cart dating back to the 1800s.
