Favorite thing: Every year at Christmas time in Brisbane and Suburb's, a competition is held by local Radio station, 4KQ, to see who has the best display of Christmas light's on their House & garden, Light's by local Businesses, Churches, etc.
The suburb's are split to north, south, east and west, and there is 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for each area, and highly commendable.
When the winner'a are announced in early December, all of these places that have entered the competition, have to be lit up from 7pm - 10pm nightly until Christmas day.
On the 4KQ website, they have a list of entries that can be printed out for local's like me to go and have a look.
Now if you are a tourist, do not worry, as they have Bus Tour's that take you around.
Tours run for approximately three hours with buses departing at 6.45pm from the following bus stops:
Ann Street, City Anzac Square- buses available for Northern, Southern & Western suburbs
Carindale Shopping Centre- Eastern suburbs only
Garden City Shopping Centre- Southern suburbs only
Indooroopilly Shopping Centre- Western suburbs only
Chermside Shopping Centre- Northern suburbs only

You must purchase tickets through Ticketek by calling 13 28 49 or by visiting www.ticketek.com.au
As it is very popular, ticket's sell out quite quickly.
I can tell you, you won't be disappointed. We go nearly every year, and every year we are amazed at how much effort people put into their display's.
You will be amazed at how many light's and decoration's you will see, it is a MUST SEE AT XMAS TIME!
