Use This Website To Find The Best Christmas Light Displays On Show This Festive Season

Every year there are some neighbourly neighbours that go above and beyond throwing up a cable of fairy lights, sticking up some festive words, and calling their Christmas light display complete. Instead, they meticulously plan their Christmas light 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.

Once they’re done, they sit back, relax and watch the faces of children and adults light up as they stand in awe at the dazzling display of light and colour. Reasons abound as to why these neighbourhood heroes light up their homes but no matter why, we just know that they spread the joy.

We love it as much as we love this time of year where we can jump in the car and go marvel at all the bright lights flashing and twinkling in the night. But, to save you from driving around aimlessly searching for bright beacons of light in the distance, there’s a handy website that helps you find not only all the displays in your area or your city, but also across the entire country.

That website is Christmas Light Search. It works by users submitting their Christmas lights display with a bit of info like if the display has been confirmed for this year and when the lights will be on as well as a description of what visitors can expect to see and hear. (Some add a more detailed description than others.)

In any case, we’ve done a bit of digging to find some truly special light displays that are well worth the trip. Take a look below at some of the confirmed displays and then add some more to your Christmas light display tour.

1. Minimine Street, Stafford

Santa in Stafford travels by hot-air balloon. At least, that’s what he’s in on Minimine Street. There’s also a giant inflatable reindeer, snowman and a second Santa waving at visitors but these will only be seen on Friday and Saturday nights (weather permitting). The light display, like the inflatables, is massive and is a clear reminder to the judges of the 4KQ that this was one of their favourites in North Brissy in both 2018 and 2019. And this year, they’re holding a switch on event every night where one lucky guest whose dressed in their best Christmas gear will get to turn on all the lights.

27 Minimine Street

🕓 7pm – 9:30pm

2. Stonycroft Street, Aspley

Since you’re in your car, you may as well turn on the FM radio when cruising by Stonycroft Street because there is this one house that has synced their lights to a Christmas music playlist.

3. Annette Street, Tingalpa

This neighbourly display of Christmas joy might not be the biggest in town, but it certainly packs a pretty punch. The garden has been fenced off with multi-coloured fairy lights but you can walk up the driveway to get a closer look at all the decorations. We recommend a walk down Candy Cane Lane and a photo in front of the six-foot Olaf.

62 Annette Street

🕓 6:30pm – 10pm

4. Kempsie Road, Upper Mount Gravatt

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.

101 Kempsie Road

🕓 7pm – 10pm

5. Lane Court, Mount Warren Park

When it comes to synchronised Christmas light displays, sometimes you can feel a little let down by the variety. At Lane Court, though, there’s an Aussie carol, a Bublé number, and a bit of dubstep as well because there needs to be a bit of something for everyone. We’re big fans of the crescent moon with a Santa hat on and this year they’ll have Santa Snow.

11 Lane Court

🕓 7pm – 10pm
