Brisbane's best & brightest


The 4KQ Christmas Lights Competition is celebrating twenty-six years in 2012, with some of the biggest and brightest Christmas light displays in Australia. Each year hundreds of South East Queenslanders decorate their homes and businesses with twinkling lights, rooftop reindeers, and pseudo Santas to see who can claim bragging rights for Brisbane's best Christmas lights display.

Why do the public have to pay aren't the rate enough now and Brisbane city toll $120 if you don't pay within 3 days. Who knew you could mark up over a thousand % on one ticket.
