The Rocks' Christmas tree created from recycled bottles

Friday, 27 November, 2009

Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority has installed Sydney's most unique Christmas tree on George Street, The Rocks, which is made entirely of recycled plastic bottles.

The eight-metre tall tree and five chandeliers have been created using 18,000 unusable plastic bottles of different sizes and colours.

Each bottle has been sculpted and moulded by hand into striking shapes and formations.

A team of eight people have spent more than 650 hours creating and installing the tree and chandeliers.

The unique tree is a stunning visual gateway for visitors to The Rocks and the chandeliers illuminate one of the precinct’s most beautiful cobbled streets, Kendall Lane.

The tree and decorations are part of the Authority's focus on making its activities and events sustainable.

The tree and decorations also add further festive ambience to The Rocks Markets by Moonlight which runs each Friday night from 5.30 to 10 pm through to 26 March 2010.
