Christmas Tree Farms: Adelaide’s Top Spots For The Perfect Pine

A lush, bushy Christmas tree is the ultimate decoration.

Ah, Christmas. Whether it's decorating the house with glittery lights and baubles or heating up some mulled wine and snuggling down to watch a festive film, early December days are best spent setting the Christmas scene. But only one thing truly sets you up for the silly season – a real Christmas Tree.

Drive out of city to hand pick your perfect pine or opt for the easy route and have it delivered straight to your door. Here are the best Christmas tree farms in Adelaide to deck your halls with festive cheer!

Christmas Tree Farm
Christmas Tree Farm
Christmas Tree Farm, Chandlers Hill

Not only is this Christmas tree farm proudly sustainable and carbon neutral, it’s also the oldest of its kind in South Australia, having been in business since 1955. Take the 30-minute drive from Adelaide and collect your tree from their 40-acre farm, or have it delivered and set up from just $50. Don’t forget to pick up some cute decorations from the Tree Shed Gift Shop on site!

TIP: When arriving home with your new tree, pop it in a bucket, give it a thorough hose down with fresh, cool water and allow to drip in a cool place to get that bushy shape back.

Open 24th November – 23rd December.

51 Sugarloaf Road, Chandlers Hills

Christmas Tree Plantation

There’s quality to be found at the Christmas Tree Plantation, where they groom and trim their trees for guaranteed greatness with a side of delicious pine smell that artificial trees could just never live up to. Take advantage of their amazing post-Christmas pick up service to get rid of your tree sensibly, and avoid being one of those people who throw it out on the street as a sad reminder that it’s no longer Christmas.

TIP: Keep your tree well hydrated. A 2.5m tree can drink around half a litre of water a day!

Open 1st – 22nd December

160 Clarendon Road, Clarendon

Adelaide Hills Christmas Trees

Roll up and get your fresh, bushy Christmas trees here. You’ll find a range of heights to suit all spaces at Adelaide Hills Christmas Trees and can get a stand and some decorations to top it all off while you’re at it. Get in early and book a tree delivery as they go fast. If you’re really organised, you can book in your tree to be collected once it’s all over for just $30.

TIP: Like flowers, trees can last 3-4 weeks if looked after properly. If it gets too dehydrated, no amount of water will save it!

Open 25th November – December.

820 Mount Barker Rd, Verdun

Make-A-Wish Adelaide

Make-A-Wish Adelaide

The amazing Make-A-Wish team are back this Christmas to spread love and joy throughout Adelaide in the form of real Christmas trees! Pick up your perfect tree from spots across Adelaide including Norwood, Christmas at the Bay, Elizabeth and Malvern for just $70, with all proceeds supporting Make-A-Wish Adelaide branches. Keep an eye out on their socials for specific dates and timings for your location.

TIP: Keep the trunk of your Christmas Tree trimmed – particularly when freshly purchased – to keep it healthy and to soak up as much water as possible.

Open certain dates between 27th November – 19th December

Various locations across Adelaide.

Adelaide Blue Lake Christmas Trees

Adelaide Blue Lake Christmas Trees

This family-run business has been dealing out Christmas trees for over 30 years and love the tradition of picking out a lush, bushy pine to make the festive season extra special. For an affordable price you can order online, pick your own tree, arrange delivery, and book a collection service. Ordering from Adelaide Blue Lake Christmas Trees really is as easy as one, two, tree… (sorry.)

TIP: Direct sunlight can be quite damaging to your tree. Try to find a reasonably cool and shady spot to keep your tree happy and brighten up with twinkling fairy lights.

49 Kanmantoo Road, Aldgate

Santa Trees Christmas Tree Farm

Live out your lumberjack fantasy and cut down your own Christmas Tree at the Santa Trees Christmas Tree Farm or choose the slightly less laborious option of a door-to-door delivery. When visiting you’re encouraged to bring along a picnic basket and enjoy the 50-acre stretch of natural pine, making it a complete day out for the family or friends.

TIP: Keep an eye out for brown or brittle needles when choosing a tree, as this is a sign of an unhealthy tree that may not last the full festive season.

Open 20th November – 23rd December.

137 Norsworthy Road, Forreston

You've got the tree, now you're ready to entertain. Check out these delicious BBQ Recipes guaranteed to impress your Christmas guests. Or better yet, book a festive feast out in Adelaide.
