Created by Tim Brinums, a winner of many 4KQ Christmas Lights competitions, this is one light display not to be missed.

Over 12,000 bulbs and more than 1,750m of lights illuminate Fernberg, the official residence of the Queensland Governor, and its gardens. With a distinctly Australian theme, visitors can spot Australian animals including a kookaburra, possum and kangaroo.
