Christmas in Brisbane is there anything that could top that? Maybe free Christmas events in Brisbane?

My young family and I were lucky enough to be invited to a preview of the Enchanted Garden. This year marks the first (of many, we hope!) where Brisbane can enjoy Christmas lighting wonders in the Roma Street Parkland. We happily spent over an hour wandering (me) or running (the kids) excitedly through these beautiful gardens.

Open 6.30pm 9pm every night from 9th 18th December, this event is free and perfect for young ones (and the young at heart) who still enjoy some Christmas magic. The lighting showcases the best of nature in these beautiful gardens, where you and your little ones can wander through the Enchanted Garden (otherwise known as the Spectacle Garden) and spot fairies, elves, fairy doors and even a small Santa.

As well as the Enchanted Garden, Roma Street Parkland have a host of Christmas activities this year. At the nearby Amphitheater, you can enjoy free Christmas themed movies for a week with a different movie showing each night from Saturday 10th Friday 16th December. Bring a picnic and a rug, or enjoy fare from the food trucks in attendance from 5.30pm. The movies start at 7pm.

Some of the movies include Arthur Christmas on Saturday 10th December, then on the following evening, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. That quintessential Christmas movie, Love Actually is shown on Monday 12th, followed by the classic Miracle on 34th Street. See the Christmas in Brisbane website for more details about the Christmas Movies in the Park.

Roma Street is looking very pretty for Christmas, Natasha.

Seeing fairies and elves must only be for the believers . . . I didn't see any? While the lights were lovely and the aromas delightful. I missed the enchanting part?? Hopefully they will build on this, in the coming years.
