Brookfield has installed Australia’s first ever Ribbon Cone Christmas Tree at the King Street Wharf, ringing in the festive spirit early in the season.

Sparkling across the harbour every night from 8pm, the Ribbon Cone Christmas Tree is prominently situated on the waterfront promenade between Casa Ristorante Italiano and Nick’s Bar and Grill. Standing at more than 13 metres tall, weighing 425kg and featuring in excess of 1,500 LEDs, the Australian designed and engineered tree took eight hours, eight people and two cranes to install.

The ribbon resembles shimmering, silver ‘tinsel carpet’ that wraps around the tree, embedded with flashing white LED string lights and white LED rope light edging.

Melinda Poile, Property Manager at King Street Wharf comments that the Christmas tree is truly unique to King Street Wharf and looks spectacular at night.

The environment-friendly tree comprises of MK LEDs, which have low CO2 emissions and allow 80 per cent reduction in power consumption.
