Brisbane’s much-anticipated annual competition — 4KQ Christmas Lights™ — is back. So, make sure that you and your family gets to hop on any of the Brisbane City Council buses for the Christmas Lights Bus Tours, beginning 17 December to 21 December 2018.

Dazzling christmas lights are back on to add sparkle and cheer to this wonderful time of the year. Who wouldn’t want to spend a few hours just navigating the neighborhood and admiring the elaborate christmas light displays that lit-up the homes and establishments? Certainly not the kids and the child in all of us.

Whilst touring the neighborhood to see these amazing colorful christmas lights can be exciting and fun, it can be tiring as well if you have super excited and energetic kids with you.

Thankfully, we have the Council bus tours on hand to take the entire family around the northern suburbs. The Council bus christmas lights tour is a more comfortable way to enjoy the sights whilst keeping an eye on the kids and sharing the experience with other patrons in the tour.

The Council bus tours are scheduled to leave at exactly 6:45 P.M. from the bus interchanges and will travel Brisbane suburbs for about three hours (includes refreshment stops). Those who are interested are required to book their seats; tickets are now on sale.
