Christmas on the Western Downs

Christmas is a special time and we’re looking forward to showing that Christmas spirit and spreading that festive cheer across the Western Downs. Council is pleased to support and deliver the following Christmas events and initiatives.

Christmas Where the Gumtrees Grow

Open to Rural Residents of the Western Downs
 Christmas Where the Gumtrees Grow is a community initiative that encourages Western Down’s rural residents to make the region shine with tinsel and decorations. Council is proud to announce the return of the Christmas Where the Gumtrees Grow Christmas competition. We are encouraging Western Downs rural residents to brighten their district and ‘Jingle all the Highways’! Decorate your rural mailbox or property entrance and celebrate where the gumtrees grow.
