Brisbane Kids Christmas Lights Map 2019
How to use the Christmas Lights Map
The map will be updated on December 8th for the final time. Many lights especially those in competitions won’t be known for certain until then.
- Use our map. It’s a google map so you will just be looking for yellow stars and heading to the ones close to you. There are so many competitions in each part of Brisbane now that we focused less on that and more on just listing the best for you! The red stars you see are the winners of the 4KQ Christmas Lights Competition.
- Wait until December 1st and then keep checking for updated lists. Christmas lights tend to go on from December 1st. If you head our prior or during rain, you will likely be disappointed

Are you thinking of becoming a Brisbane Christmas Lights Elf?
If you are wondering how people get on a Christmas light list, it is all in the preparation. Some spend many years gathering a collection of Christmas decorations, often purchasing after the Christmas rush and using websites like HOME, Temple and Webster, Mumgo and other discount sites to add to their collections. Gumtree is another place to check out discounted Christmas lights, but buying from here will not ensure that the lights are safe.
If you are unsure about the safety of your Christmas light display, you should consider getting your local firies out to inspect and you may need to make sure you have proper equipment that separates the lights from your main power source. These are all questions for a professional and if you are looking to have an extreme Christmas lights display, then calling an electrician first for advice may be worthwhile.
Lights competitions Brisbane
There are a number of lights competitions across Brisbane, the most famous being 4kq but River 949 also run a lights competition. our list has never just been about those who enter the competitions because lots of houses have amazing Christmas lights but can’t meet the terms and conditions of the popular Christmas lights competitions. We do try and note all the winners of these competitions on the listing we have incase this is of interest to you.
To anyone who takes the time to set up Christmas Lights: You should know that you are honouring the spirit of Christmas and keeping it alive for Brisbane Kids everywhere. Driving around and looking at the lights is a tradition for many families and, for us as a family, we really enjoy playing the spot the Christmas lights as we drive around on our way to the bigger displays like yours. Thank you so much for both viewing this list and taking the time to submit your lights, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas in Brisbane with Kids.
NOTE: These Brisbane Christmas light locations have been sourced from direct emails sent to Brisbane Kids, as well as 4KQ, river 949, The Times, Quest, Redland City Bulletin, and various individual Facebook pages belonging to locations with large light displays as well as Facebook groups. If for any reason the Christmas Lights have been entered incorrectly just let us know.
