Hamilton Christmas Tree

New Zealand's biggest and most beautiful Christmas Tree

It’s 27 metres tall to the tip of the star. That’s over 6 stories high. It takes a team of 15 people to install the frame and the lighting, fluff the branches and hang the baubles. This tree is huge!

The tree dominates Garden Place once again in 2018 and will 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 1st December 2018 with a special event that includes the opportunity to sing some favourite Christmas carols.

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

This year we will be celebrating on 1 December 2018
