Christmas Lights

Government House

Christmas Lights are back on at Government House in a spectacular must see display that is open to the public from December 7-16.

More than 1800m of lights and over 10000 bulbs will illuminate the landmark historic house and gardens this year resulting in a magical light show that will enchant all ages.

Last year’s display attracted thousands of patrons through the gates of Brisbane’s majestic landmark building to see it lit up at its festive best and this year is set to be bigger and better.
