On the first week of Christmas, my true love gave to me…. A Christmas tree! 😀 How cool does Lexis Brisbane look at the moment? ❤ ❤
Brisbane is also celebrating the first week with some fun and free events starting this weekend, with plenty more to come in the following weeks. Take a look below at some suggestions for this weekend.
Christmas Movies Under the Stars:
This annual event makes its return this Saturday not only in South Bank, but also in Roma Street Parklands for the first time this year!

City Hall Light Spectacular:
Starting tomorrow night from 7:30pm down in King George Square is the City Hall light-show spectacular! This year’s story is a playful, Aussie take on The Night Before Christmas. Every 15 minutes after sundown from tomorrow until Christmas Eve, the clock tower will come alive with its unique story-time display. You’re bound to see it at least once while you’re here! 🙂
St Gerard’s Christmas Festival:
What’s Christmas without Christmas lights?! One of the most popular displays on the northside of Brisbane is at the Our Lady of the Angels parish in Chermside, which is famous for its gigantic light angel. They have markets, activities and food. You can visit them any night across the festive season, so be sure to check it out, it truly is pretty! Click here to read more.
