▪ Ann Street, City Anzac Square – northern, southern, and western suburbs
Tickets go on sale on Monday, 18 November, and must be pre-purchased through Ticketek and cannot be bought at the 'bus door'.
The tour cost is $22 for adults, $11 for pensioners and children, $11 for full-time students and $50 for families with two adults and two children, plus transaction fees. The two children's tickets can be substituted for any two patrons entitled to a concession fare. Alternatively, one of the two adult tickets can also be substituted for another concession fare.
The buses are decorated with Xmas garlands and stuffed animals and Xmas carols are piped out. The bus snakes in and out of streets in well-known suburbs to give us the full enjoyment of all the houses on display. The bus stops at selected points along the route to allow you to take pictures and walk around the displays. There may even be a surprise visit from Santa.
In this lead up to Xmas where downtime is at a premium and stress levels are high this is just the kind of blissful event that the whole family can enjoy in the evening and the most that you are called to do is to get on and off a bus. Now how hard can that be as you look out in amazement at the beautiful Xmas lights and displays around the city.
