Geelong's Floating Christmas Tree Sound and Light Show

Our spectacular Floating Christmas Tree is in the bay and has been lit!

While you can still visit the tree and witness the spectacular sound and light show, this year we're bringing you a couple of new options for enjoying the tree.

Watch a live feed of the tree (no audio) from the comfort of your home or enjoy the sound and light show recording that we have filmed for your enjoyment 24/7. See both the live feed and video recording below.

Enjoy this recording of the spectacular sound and light show.

Please note that due to music licensing rights, this recording features a different soundtrack from the live show that you can experience at the Waterfront. We think both versions rock!

Also enjoy our spectacular floating Christmas tree live:


Of course, you'll still be able to visit the tree while observing COVID-19 safety measures including physical distancing and wearing a mask.

Our spectacular Floating Christmas Tree sound and light show will be staged each night between 8.30pm and midnight. The shows are approximately 6 minute in length and plays every 15 minutes. 

This is the seventh installation of Geelong’s Floating Christmas Tree! 

For Christmas in Geelong 2020, there will be three different shows to experience.

  • On now until 26 November
  • 27 November - 25 December
  • 26 December - 7 January 2021

Make sure you tune it to see them all from home or visit the Waterfront. Each has a different light show and music production worth catching!

The tree is 25 metres tall and is moored at Steampacket Quay, Waterfront Geelong, near the Carousel.

The tree will be a prominent feature of the Waterfront throughout the festive season. 
Much thanks goes to our Floating Christmas Tree sponsors, Geelong Port. The team at Geelong Port provides safe storage and assembly space every year. As you can imagine the space required is rather large and the assistance of Geelong Port is essential.

Christmas is a magical time in Geelong. Don't miss other inclusions, like:

  • Projections on City Hall
  • Geelong Night of Lights
  • Greater Geelong Christmas Adventure
  • Central Geelong Christmas Trail Map
  • Christmas at Home
