Aberdeen, Oakhampton and Gillieston Heights creations among 2017 Christmas hay displays

FROM giant teddy bears to Santa and Rudolph – people across the Hunter are taking the latest Christmas display trend to the next level

Drivers can often be seen slowing down to view large hay bale creations in rural locations.

After impressing Upper Hunter travellers in 2016, the big bear outside Aberdeen returned to dazzle once again.

This year, Oakhampton father Joe Gollan created a fun hay display – much to the delight of his two children.

At Moobi, the creativity continued, with a Christmas tree made from recycled old farm tyres, surrounded by hay presents.

Mr Gollan said he was inspired after seeing hay sculptures at European cycling events.

“That’s where the concept came from,” he said, adding it was a hit with his two young children, not to mention those who saw it as they drove by.

“The kids love it.”

Mr Gollan said it was nice to sit down of a night and see cars slowing down to see the display.

“Usually the back window goes down and it’s the kids and they really appreciate it,” he said.
