It’s fantastic that our local students get so involved during this exciting time of the year and they do an outstanding job decorating their trees. Each tree has its own special design and character and is a demonstration of the creativity and artistic talent of the young people in our region.

Children across our region have had a disruptive and challenging year with intermittent lockdowns separating them from their friends and having to adapt to remote learning. It’s fantastic that the kids could come together to work on these special Christmas trees that represent their schools.

With two-hour parking free in 2P zones in Central Geelong throughout December, we hope families will come in to see School Christmas Trees, the famous Floating Christmas Tree, and snap a photo on our Giant Selfie Trail.
