Never mind your electricity bills; It’s Christmas, which means it’s time to get festive!

‘Tis the season to be… recycling? Hey, why not?

Graceville Avenue Christmas Lights, Brisbane
Finally, we find ourselves at the most elaborate, ambitious, meticulously planned display of all. Excited? You should be, buster! The award-winning Graceville Avenue Christmas lights are a triumphant extravaganza of synchronised LEDs, music and general holiday happiness, so head down and prepare to be soundly dazzled. If it helps, we promise that only one of the songs is from Frozen…
