‘Tis the season. The Strand Arcade kicks off the festive season with a nod to the beauty of the Australian landscape through all-new native themed Christmas installations. The hero of installation includes three blossoming eucalyptus branches that span the length of the arcade, and a sculptural gumnut pod that sits on the ground floor. Each piece is illuminated over the Christmas period, drenched in individual lights, flooding the entire space in a warm glow.
