Seafarers Christmas Pop-Up
Miniature (and real) Christmas trees will line the banks of the Yarra — and they're available to purchase.
Now that December is here, it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas — and, between Sunday, December 8–Tuesday, December 10, that includes down by the Yarra. In the Docklands spot that'll soon be known as the Seafarers waterfront precinct (aka opposite Seafarers Bridge), a supremely festive event will line the river bank with real miniature Christmas trees. 'Tis the season, after all. 'Tis the place that was recently filled with tulips by Joost Bakker, too.
The potted eco-friendly Xmas trees are part of the three-day Seafarers Christmas Pop-Up, and they'll be available for sale for between $40–75 — with the cost depending on just how tiny a tree you pick. The Plant Society will also be onsite, selling a variety of other plants and pots for that green thumb in your life (or, if you're treating yo'self, as a pressie for yourself).
While the pop-up runs from 10am–4pm on Sunday, and then again from 11am–4pm on Monday and Tuesday, heading by on opening day is recommended. That's when St Ali Coffee will be in the vicinity to add some caffeine to your morning and, from 10am–12pm, The Plant Society will also be hosting a ticketed (for $45) wreath-making class.
