A huge open-air market will be held where the water meets the National Park in Kurnell on November 25, and it’s promising presents that you won’t be able to find at your local Westfield. There will be 120 stalls selling everything from Christmas trees and organic hams to gifts for the whole family, so you can grab your pine centrepiece and all the presents and decorations to make him sparkle.

Christmas trees range from 5-14ft and start from $78.

At Reverse Garbage you can buy an artificial Christmas tree that has been donated from a previous owner, plus they have mini trees that have been made from recycled goods. They’re fun and creative (not to mention 100 per cent ethically sourced) and are mostly under $20. While you’re there, explore the warehouse – you never know what whacky Christmas decorations you might discover, which are usually priced between $30-$50.

City of Sydney

Sometimes getting rid of a Christmas tree is harder than getting one. Luckily, the City of Sydney’s annual Christmas tree recycling drive is on again in 2017. It’s available for free for residents in the City of Sydney council area, which includes the CBD, Pyrmont and Ultimo, Paddington, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Waterloo. Bookings are essential and can be made via the City of Sydney website.
