Popular Christmas Lights return to Government House
Christmas Lights are back on at Queensland's Government House with a spectacular display that is open to the public nightly from 7pm-8pm on December 9-15, 2022.
The landmark historic house and gardens of the Fernberg Estate will be once again lit up in a magical light show that has become a must-see for Brisbane families at Christmas time.
Aside from the popular polar animals peeking out from the gardens, this year’s display evokes a very Bush Christmas theme, with emus, wombats and kangaroos roaming the lawns, and even a huntsman spider!
Visitors are also welcome inside Government House to have a photo alongside the grandly decorated Christmas Tree.
Entry is free. Tickets and pre-bookings are not required.
Simply turn up and enjoy the festive display!
