How To Find Brisbane's Best Christmas Lights

by Sally Foster (follow)
How to hunt down the best lights

One of the best things about the festive period is seeing all of the Christmas lights pop up around our neighbourhood and this year has been no exception.

But outside of your own neighbourhood, how do you find the best Christmas lights around?



Family Photo offer affordable, outdoor photography sessions which are perfect for families with little ones who can't sit still!
With social distancing in place and many of us quarantined in our homes this school holidays, we have to get really creative with what to get up to. Here is our guide to help you out. Featuring indoor and outdoor activities.
Do a Bus Tour

If you want an alternative to driving around the streets with your GPS, or if you just don't know where to start, then you can let somebody else do the hard work for you on a Christmas Lights Bus Tour. You can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

There are a number of Brisbane bus tours to choose from, the main one being hosted by 4KQ and provided by Brisbane City Council. We have put together all the basic information you will need to take part.

Tickets are available from Ticketek and must be purchased in advance. Toilet and refreshment stops will be available. Christmas Carol singing in mandatory for all attendees.

Do It Yourself

For some, the idea of the bus tour isn't ideal, and they would prefer to navigate themselves. So below you will find some helpful websites to help you pick out the best houses to visit:

Head over to the Families Magazine Website to view their list of some of the best Brisbane houses to check out, and where they are located.

Christmas Light Search is an awesome search engine website that allows you to search by suburb or postcode and it will show you where all of the best Christmas lights are within that local area.

Head into the City

Brisbane City and surrounds have some beautiful lights and events happening over the Christmas period. Here are some really special ones to check out:

The Enchanted Garden at Roma Street Parklands is one of Brisbane’s largest lighting displays

Lord Mayor's Christmas Tree in King George Square is a giant Christmas tree in the heart of the city

The Tree is complimented by the beautiful Gold Lotto Hall City Lights

The lights of St Stephen's Cathedral is an animation and projection on the cathedral.
