You can always do your own thing by exploring your local seasonal spectacle by foot or loading up the car with the kids and the dog and setting off on an illuminated journey of discovery. But if you'd rather have all the guesswork, and the legwork, taken out of the experience then a fully guided tour in the comfort of a coach or bus might be just what you're looking for. Just so you don't miss out on the best lights displays of 2013 below is our guide to Christmas Lights Tours in Brisbane, Ipswich, Moreton Bay and the Gold Coast.
