Brisbane Christmas Markets 2013


Posted 2013-11-04 by Clare DeVillefollow
It's time to start making those lists and checking them twice! It's my favourite time of year when the city comes to life in a dazzling burst of bright lights, tinsel and carolling. Christmas markets in particular are vibing, and the perfect place to pick up your fresh Christmas produce, and those unique gifts that you won't find in the shops. As Christmas draws closer, many of our favourite markets are spreading Christmas cheer by putting on special Christmas Markets; here's a list of the major Christmas markets in Brisbane this festive season.
