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.

Hospice Waikato Memory Stars

logoHere’s a  great way to help remember our loved ones at Christmas time…Make a donation to Hospice Waikato and get a memory star to remember a loved one at Christmas this year.  The stars are available from Coffee Post, Ground Floor of Sky City opposite Garden Place.  You can also decorate them there if you do not have time to hang them yourself.

Be as creative as you want. Add messages, drawings or decorations and dedicate your star to a loved one. Your special memory star will then help decorate the beautiful big Christmas tree in Garden Place.
