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.
