Sure, the faux Christmas tree does a great job — it can endure the many decorations that get added to it each year with every new school year Christmas craft, there’s a no-mess aftermath, and it’s easy pack-away until the next December comes around. But, maybe this year, you would like to try a display of the real thing — the fresh smell of pine along with a touch of nature indoors…still adorned with the kids’ decorations and wrapped in lights, of course.
Adding to the adventure is heading out into the open air and getting to choose the ‘perfect’ real Christmas tree with the whole family.
Here are our four known ‘real Christmas tree choosing’ locations, but maybe you have one to add? Get in touch through our Facebook page so we can put it on the list.
Tomalong Christmas Tree Farm
An awesome family-run tree farm. So welcoming and friendly. They provide the saw and directions to the type of tree you are looking for. All trees are $80 and they are open seven days, all daylight hours.
96 Pitt Town Rd, Kenthurst
Sydney Christmas Tree Farm
Choose your own fresh tree from their farm. Trees are grown and pruned for the Christmas tree market. When large trees run out they can source from elsewhere.
6 Namba Road, Duffy’s Forest
Top Forty Orchard
Top Forty also has fields of orchard so you can grab some fresh fruit while you’re tree hunting. You aren’t able to physically chop down your chosen tree but you are able to hunt out your tree and arrange for the staff to chop it down for you.
1755 Burragorang Rd, Oakdale
Dural Christmas Tree Farm
You also can’t physically chop down your own tree at Dural Christmas Tree Farm, but you can search for the perfect tree for the staff to do the chopping. This location is extremely popular and can get very busy. You can also order online.
879 Old Northern Rd, Dural
