Tell me more: Brisbane city is the perfect place to build up a little Christmas cheer! There are so many great events to get us all into the Christmas spirit, and this one is right up there with the best! Every night at 6:30pm leading up to Christmas, the switch is on for thousands of lights in the Spectacle Garden which transforms it into a magical and mystical forest. Wander through at your own pace and soak it all up - it really is beautiful and you feel like you are in another world! Due to its popularity, patrons are sent through in waves, which means that although you may have to wait to get in, you will have less crowding inside which makes even more enjoyable. There are also other activities on at Roma St Parklands for the kids - from making your own bamboo lanterns and movies in the parklands at select times - check the website for more details! This really is a very impressive lightshow and it's well worth the effort to get along to experience it for yourself!
