Wrapping up Christmas

Thursday, 27 December 2018

Attending the launch of the Floating Christmas Tree and projections has become a popular tradition for many Geelong families marking the start of the Christmas season. Last year’s Christmas program saw more than 164,000 people visit the floating tree.

The Floating Christmas Tree has become the centrepiece of the Christmas in Geelong program which also includes the City Hall projections, the Central
Geelong Christmas trail and Myer Geelong Christmas windows.

Overall, the 2017–18 Christmas in Geelong program injected an estimated $17.3 million into the local economy. The City recently announced the tree will
continue to be displayed for a further five years, providing significant benefit to Geelong’s business and tourism industry.

The City and Central Geelong Marketing would like to thank the major sponsor of the Floating Christmas Tree, GeelongPort, along with Myer, Westfield
Geelong, Deakin University, Hanlon Industries, and Elstone Diving Services.
