Make this Christmas as magical as possible

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, in Brisbane it sure is. There are plenty of wonderful family friendly Christmas events and experiences happening around the neighbourhood that will be sure to get everyone into the Christmas spirit.

Here are some of our top picks:

Lighting of the Christmas Tree at King George Square

On Friday 30th November from 6:30 to 8:30pm, Brisbane’s towering 22 metre tall Christmas tree is returning to King George Square and you can bring along your family to watch the twinkling lights being turned on.

Christmas Parade at Queen Street Mall

The annual Christmas Parade presented by David Jones will march through the Queen Street Mall and Albert Street right into King George Square with singing and dancing performers. And special guest: Santa. The parade will take place at 7pm every night from Friday 14 until Sunday 23 December.

Carols by Twilight at Southbank

Listen and sing along to Christmas carol classics, as the sun goes down. You can bring along a picnic and enjoy it on the green while you listen as well. It is free from 6pm to 8pm from 14th to 23rd December.

Christmas Carols outside the city

If you don't want to head into the city for Christmas Carols, then the Moreton Bay Council is hosting plenty of free family friendly events. The signature carols are at North Lakes, Pine Rivers Park, Scarborough or Caboolture, but there are plenty in other areas as well. See here for more info.

Logan are also hosting some family friendly Christmas Carols to get you into the Christmas Spirit.
