See Brisbane’s Christmas Lights by Council bus

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is inviting residents to enjoy the sparkle of this year’s Christmas lights on one of Council’s bus tours journeying through the city’s most spectacularly lit suburbs.

The Lord Mayor said the Council Christmas lights bus tours ran nightly to some of the winning entries from the annual 4KQ Christmas Lights competition starting on Monday, 16 December until Friday, 20 December.

“Now in its 27th year, the 4KQ Christmas Lights competition is one of the biggest and best Christmas light displays in Australia,” Cr Quirk said.

“Each year, hundreds of homes and entire neighbourhoods across the city are decorated with brilliant lights and dazzling displays by residents hoping to spread some festive cheer.

“Last year, Council put on over 90 Christmas lights bus tours over five nights, showing just how popular they are.

“Council first launched the Christmas lights bus tours in 1992 to make it easier people to sit back and enjoy the seasonal spectacle these homes have to offer.”

Tours run for about three hours, with buses departing at 6:45pm from the following bus stops:
• Ann Street, City Anzac Square - northern, southern, and 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

Tickets go on sale on Monday, 18 November, and must be pre-purchased through Ticketek and cannot be bought at the ‘bus door’.

The tour cost is $22 for adults, $11 for pensioners and children, $11 for full-time students and $50 for families with two adults and two children, plus transaction fees.

The two children’s tickets can be substituted for any two patrons entitled to a concession fare. Alternatively, one of the two adult tickets can also be substituted for another concession fare.

Please note:
- Patrons must have ticket in hand to board bus.
- Toilet and refreshment stops will be available.
- Addresses/routes of the houses that will be visited on the tour will not be distributed.
- Food/drink can be taken on board for consumption outside of the bus when stopped but must be in plastic containers and all rubbish must be removed from the bus.
