Xmas Lights

More than 1,750m of lights and over 12,000 bulbs illuminated Queensland’s historic Government House and gardens for the annual public Christmas Lights display from 8-17 December 2017.

Due to its increasing popularity, the number of nights the estate grounds were open for the Christmas Lights display doubled from five nights in 2016, to 10 nights this year.

More than 11,200 Queenslanders visited for the 2017 Christmas Lights display.
