New Zealand's biggest and most beautiful Christmas Tree

Saturday 2nd December - 3rd January 2018 (removal date to be confirmed)

It’s 27 metres tall to the tip of the star.  That's over 6 stories high.  It takes a team of 20 people to install the frame, fluff the branches, hang the baubles.  This tree is huge!

The tree will dominate Garden Place once again in 2017 and be a great focal point for the community to gather, watch, perform and celebrate the festive season.

The Tree will light up for the first time on Saturday 2nd December 2017 with a special event.

The Christmas Tree continues to light up the December nights right through to New Year.
