It's that time of year again. Bust out the Mariah, slap on a (seasonally inappropriate) Christmas sweater, load up on eggnog and mince pies and pause your cheesy Christmas movie binge-fest courtesy of Netflix, because it's time to head out for some Christmas lights.

Luckily for us, the Gold Coast is blessed with some of the best Christmas lights displays around and there’s absolutely no room for Grinches here. Read on for some of the best (and confirmed) Christmas lights on the Gold Coast, so you can spread the Christmas cheer this year.

Editor's note: Please let us know if we have missed any of your favourite Christmas light legends.

12 Drumbeat Place


Everyone knows Coomera is the place to fuel all your Christmas lights dreams and this house in Drumbeat Place is a point in case. Almost every surface of this two-storey house is covered in lights, including a massive Christmas tree, a huge blow-up castle for Santa, trees adorned with lights and so much cheery goodness.

Forest Oak Drive

Upper Coomera

Undoubtedly one of the most iconic Gold Coast streets for Christmas light perusing, Forest Oak Drive never fails to deliver, year after year. Almost the entire street lights up in festive colours, extravagant displays and interactive exhibitions. Be sure to allow time for walking, as you may need to park a few streets away.

97 Annabelle Crescent

Upper Coomera

This huge Christmas lights display will get you in the festive spirit with moving features, an indoor nativity scene, Christmas statues, a Santa parked up on the roof and a walk-through Christmas trail. These Christmas lights take over a month to set up and the owners have been displaying lights for over 15 years.

Waigeo Street

Pacific Pines

The Christmas lights display on Waigeo Street is so cute we could die. Colourful lights, adorable Santas and charming little signs...plus you really can’t beat Santa in a Kombi and Santa in a caravan. Max adorable levels in true Aussie style.

4 Santa Clara Rise 

Upper Coomera

This house on Santa Clara Rise (aka Santa Claus Lane) will make all your Christmas light display dreams come true. An inflatable Santa arch, teeny Santas, big Santas...the more you look, the more you’ll find. Grab a Maccas soft serve and visit this showstopper that draws crowds every year.

16 Taupo Court


If you’re on the hunt for a sparkling extravaganza, look no further than Taupo Court in Coombabah. A lineup of Christmas trees, twinkling stars and strobing snowflakes...you definitely can’t miss this house, it’s literally lighting up the whole street. Tune into FM 107.0 to get the most out of these synced-up lights.

3 Beaumont Crescent

Pacific Pines

Check out a dazzling display of Santa’s kangaroo sleigh (it’s impressive, trust us) at Beaumont Crescent this year. Make sure you take an ‘elfie’ in Santa’s sleigh and have a look at their Disneyland inspired Christmas room. Crack that eggnog if you’re feeling naughty, a jolly treat stocking if you’ve been nice, and wander down by moonlight. 

6 Boyer Street

Pacific Pines

Ever seen Santa in a pool with a reindeer and a polar bear? Well here’s your chance ‘cause this is happening in Boyer Street. Pack your gingerbread man, don your fluffy red hat and get amongst the merry times. The lights are normally up and twinkling by 5:30pm and turn off at 10pm, so be sure to visit between these times for all the festive vibes.

26 Stevens Street


This house is the definition of light up from top to bottom. This Christmas lights display in Southport is so cute we can’t even deal. You;ve got Santa climbing a Christmas tree, Santa on a motorbike, Santa in a Kombi...is there anything Santa can’t do?

Mirinae Circuit


Strobing lights, glittering trees and an impressive array of Christmas-themed figures (complete with a giant glowing snowman); Mirinae Circuit in Pimpama is racking up a killer electricity bill to bless us with this Christmas lights goodness, so make sure to check it out. Tune into FM 89.0 to listen to the festively synced-up lights.

2/7 Moss Terrace


A very impressive Christmas light show is going on at Moss Terrace that's giving us all the Christmas feels. The strobing multi-coloured house display that meanders into their spacious garden will make you ho-ho-hope they’ll return again in the years to come. Spot Santa perched precariously on their roof!

2 Underhill Place


When you’ve got a large backyard, there’s one thing you need to do with it—turn into into an epic Christmas-themed lights display. That’s exactly what has happened at 2 Underhill Place in Tallai and we love it. From their massive stars to the giant Christmas tree on the balcony to the cheery nutcrackers guarding the gate, this house screams Christmas.

Winchester Drive


With twinkling lights adorning every surface, a Grinch sneaking over the fence and Santa in a treehouse, Winchester Drive has truly decked the halls (and the fence and front garden, too) for a blindingly beautiful Christmas light display tucked away in Upper Coomera.

Salvado Drive

Pacific Pines

Several houses on Salvado Drive in Pacific Pines have upped their Christmas light game this year and we’re here for it. Expect giant Santas, reindeers and some magnificently flashing lights. Pass the popcorn and enjoy the show ‘cause this one decked-out street you need to visit.
