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.

Bus Tours

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.

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.
