Where to buy real Christmas trees in Sydney

Christmas trees are at the centre of festive activity in Sydney, so we've rounded up the options for sourcing holiday fir trees

There’s nothing like a big, bright Christmas tree to transform an ordinary living room into a festive fantasia. And after the year that we've had, we think it's only fitting to dial up the Yuletide joy with a real, pine-fresh tree. 

While crossing international borders is off the cards for many this Christmas, the fresh pine smell of a live cut tree (or a cute potted mini tree that will live on) can transport you to a Northern Hemisphere wonderland.

We've collected a sleigh-load of nearby Christmas tree sellers that deliver the goods – sometimes directly to your door. Take a look at our list below for real Christmas trees, trees for hire, and environmentally-friendly options.

After some gifts to put under that tree? Check out the best Christmas markets in Sydney. 

Find real Christmas trees

Merlino’s Christmas Trees

  • Wareemba

Whether you’re after a towering tree or a mini potted tree, Merlino’s Christmas Trees are sure to have what you need. At the warehouse in Five Dock there's real cut Christmas trees (starting at $80) and cute little potted pines available (from $35 to $200) in two species and multiple sizes. Open daily from November 29, in-store purchases can be made with contactless delivery starting at $20. In 2021, Merlino's is open until December 22, or while stocks last. 

The French-influenced florists of Don de L'Amour are bringing pine-fresh vibes to the Tramsheds with a Christmas Tree Pop-up Store. These festive firs have been growing in the Southern Tablelands and tended to by industry leading growers and are available in sizes ranging from 5ft up to 9ft starting from $120. Drop into the Tramsheds before December 19 to load up your sleigh 9am–4pm. You can also place a present for patients of Westmead Children’s Hospital under the Tramsheds Tree until December 23. You can also pre-order trees online to pick up at the Tramsheds or the Bankstown warehouse.

Getting out to the woods (read: Christmas tree farms or markets) dressed in full lumberjack attire to find the perfect Yuletide fir can be a hassle for many. Fortunately, the festive flora can come to you, courtesy of online plant retailer Floraly. The Redfern-based eco-friendly flower delivery service delivers adorable, tiny Christmas trees that’ll fit out your living room with seasonal, sustainable sparkle with just a click of a button.

Dural Christmas Tree Farm
  • Shopping
  • Sydney

Dural Christmas Tree Farm sells real pine Christmas trees that are available for delivery, and they also offer post-Christmas tree pick-up and recycling. For $35-$65, they’ll collect your used tree, mulch it back at their farm and use it to help look after next year’s crop. If you can’t make it out to their farm, Dural Christmas Tree Farm will also be at Carriageworks Farmers Markets or you can contact them for a delivery (but note they're in high demand, see the website for details).

  • Shopping
  • Marrickville

At Marrickville's Reverse Garbage you can buy an artificial Christmas tree that has been donated from a previous owner or discover stacks of materials to get crafty with and build your own makeshift yuletide fir. They also have barrels full of recycled Christmas decorations and bundles of Christmas cards. Check out their website or Facebook page for workshops to make your own wreath or other festive goodies. While you’re there, explore the warehouse – you never know what whacky doodads you might discover, which are usually priced between $30-$50.
