2021 Christmas bus light tours information

There is nothing more magical than the yearly tradition of driving around the neighbourhood looking at Christmas lights. A Gold Coast Christmas Lights Bus Tour is the perfect way to experience seeing all the best Christmas lights displays.

Why choose a Gold Coast Christmas lights bus tour?

While it is fun driving around the neighbourhood trying to find all the best Christmas lights displays, it can be a bit of a hassle. Especially as it is such a popular Christmas tradition! If you choose to drive you’ll have to navigate around all the other cars and people trying to enjoy the dazzling light displays.

By booking a tour all you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy while someone else takes care of the driving, planning, and navigating. So you can just focus on making amazing Christmas memories with your family.
