Lighting and decorations
More than 270 Christmas and New Year themed street banners are installed along road corridors throughout the region. Council decorates two Christmas trees in Nambour and Caloundra outside the council buildings.

There are 20 locations with council decorated trees adding Christmas cheer to our local communities. All council decorated trees use LED lighting to align with council's commitment to sustainability. The majority of trees will be illuminated from 1 December, with some local communities hosting events to officially turn on the lights as part of the festivities. The lights should be shining in all trees by 10 December.
