Christmas Lights Brisbane Western Suburbs 2023: WITH PHOTOS!!

The Christmas Lights Brisbane West has to offer are a must see for Brisbane families, no matter where you reside. In fact, the houses that take part in the KIIS FM competition are the same ones that entered the 4KQ Christmas lights competition and always receive high praise and take out a number of the prizes.

This area may be a great Christmas Light itinerary for young families, who don’t want to travel a lot between each stop, which can make for a late night.

Plan your trip

The best way to get the most out of visiting Christmas lights in the Brisbane area is to download a map and a list of the best lit houses in Brisbane West, as judged by 4KQ. You can download your map here.

Avoid congested streets

Everard Street in Westlake is one of the busiest light displays in the Brisbane West. Consider parking to see the displays or drive by right on dusk or make it the last street to visit after viewing other streets in Jindalee, Sinnamon Park and Middle Park.

Visit the KIIS entrants

If you’re after quality Christmas house light viewing, then make sure these houses are on your list. Last year, Sinnamon Park, Middle Park and Westlake had a number of winning houses. Be sure to visit. We  have added a Christmas tree symbol beside the *must see* displays in 2023. This means we have seen their lights this year so we know they are worth a look!

Drive by or park?

The weather and the amount of people visiting the lights, will often determine if you get out of the car. Be mindful of others wishing to see the light displays. Consider parking in a side or adjacent street if you choose to visit the lights. Don’t park on a neighbour’s driveway or park across a driveway. Ensure your children stay close to you, and not on the road.


At night, it can be hard for drivers to see kids.Heck, even parents can find it hard to find their kids if a street is particularly busy. Why not dress them in a hi-vis shirt or get them to wear some glow sticks so they can be easily seen. This will also add a fun element to the night of Christmas Light watching too.

Christmas Lights Brisbane West are a popular area that houses the best lights. Make sure it’s on your must list to visit this Christmas.
