Every year there are some neighbourly neighbours that go above and beyond with their Christmas lights, meticulously planning their displays days, weeks or even months in advance as the best designers do, and when the time strikes they get to work setting up and decorating. In Brisbane, we also have our city Christmas lights to look forward to.
We love it as much as we love this time of year, when we can marvel at all the bright lights flashing and twinkling in the night. But, to save you from searching for bright beacons of light in the distance, we’ve done a bit of digging to find some truly special setups that are well worth the visit. Take a look below at some of the confirmed displays in Brisbane and add them to your Christmas light tour for 2023.
On the northside, you’ll find one of the most spectacular Christmas light displays in Brisbane. With Christmas-themed decorations as well lights covering the whole house, this Burpengary East abode is absolutely worth checking out along your hunt for Christmas lights.

From December 1 until January 8, Brisbane’s famous 22-metre Christmas tree will make a return. The tree is one of the largest Christmas trees in the Southern Hemisphere, so be sure to catch it in all its glory. City Hall will also become illuminated with lights and projections.

If you dare, walk under the house to find Santa’s lair. Just joking, but if you do go under the house, you will find Santa’s workshop. Otherwise, the yard is chock-a-block of lights and Christmas ornaments that trying to spot them all would take you days.

The song I’m Blue comes to mind as soon as we see this Christmas display, mainly because the synchronised lights turn predominantly aqua in their rotation, with plenty of snowflakes to give off that winter wonderland feel.
