All Week

Brisbane City Hall Light Display

Brisbane is putting its pretty face on every night right through to Christmas Eve, thanks to The Gold Lotto City Hall Light Spectacular! This annual visual masterpiece is the jewel in Brissy’s Christmas crown, lighting up City Hall in all her glory.

Take A Trip To The Christmas Village

Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at South Bank’s legendary Christmas Village. Held in the South Bank Parklands from the 15th to the 23rd of December, South Bank is putting an Aussie spin on the white winter land by relocating to our white sand beach! There will be a beach cinema showing all the Christmas classics you grew up with as well as village carols, a trackless train, craft and dance activities, and every kind of yuletide stall you could possibly imagine. The village will cap off with a fireworks display on the last three days, giving you an explosive start to your Christmas Eve. For all the info, click here.
