The festive season is just around the corner, with Christmas being only a month away! Where did that time go?! :O Some of you might be used to having a hot summer Christmas, but for most of you, this will be a new experience! If you are in Australia this Christmas, make sure you celebrate true Aussie style, by kicking back with loved ones or your mates on the beach, fry up the barbecue and listen to the famous Triple J countdown on the radio. Whatever you choose to do, there will be plenty of Christmas activities to see and do around Brisbane. This weekend marks the beginning of the festivities! 🙂

The official opening ceremony will kick off this Friday night, with the lighting of the King George Square tree. Gather around the square from 5:30pm to enjoy free entertainment, then watch the tree come to life at 6:30pm! ❤ You don’t want to miss this spectacular event!! Click here for more info.
