Christmas Trees

Nothing beats the smell of a freshly cut, Christmas pine tree. If you’re a little behind organising your tree, never fear.

Pick up a 5ft – 8ft (or pre-order an 8-12ft) fresh Christmas Tree from Victoria Christmas Trees in Melton. You can also grab a tree right up until Christmas Eve at Melbourne Christmas Farm in Plumpton.
