Celebrate Sunshine Coast Council’s program of fun, family-friendly festive season activities and events.
Council starts the festive season by progressively flicking on the switches of 29 community Christmas trees as part of the annual Christmas Tree Trail.
The idea of the trail began more than two years ago when council began talking with communities across the region about how they celebrate Christmas and what they would like to see happen in their region to make this a special time of year in the future. Resoundingly, the answer was that locals wanted more lights and a signature tree of their own in a place where all could enjoy it.
The festive tree in Buderim is a Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia). It is situated next to the oldest building in Buderim: the community owned historic post office. The festive decorations in this old jacaranda tree have been designed to highlight and silhouette the building behind it, while also featuring low voltage LED lighting and non-lit silver spirals to enhance the daylight presence of the tree. This environmentally friendly LED lighting features across all of the trees this year, keeping with council’s vision for the Sunshine Coast to be Australia’s most sustainable region - vibrant, green and diverse.
Council is using the latest in technology to enable residents to view the history of each community tree simply by using smart phone scan codes at each site. The community also has the opportunity to find out about community festive season celebrations in their area and how they can join in, simply by clicking on the various trees online at council’s website. Join Councillor Dickson as he lights up the evening in Buderim for the festive season.
