Lighting of Pomona Christmas tree
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 Pomona is a ficus fig tree.
The decorations installed include custom designed multicolour lit balls and small lit green spirals. The tree is crowned by a large lit white star at its peak and all the decorations have been designed and assembled in Queensland.
Environmentally friendly Light Emitting Diode (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.
