2022 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.

Where and when is the Christmas lights bus tour?

In previous years, Murrays Coaches ran bus tours to view the City of Gold Coast Christmas Lights Competition entrant’s homes every evening. The tours were split into North and South due to the popularity of the competition locations across the city.

If you have small children it’s a good idea to bring their pyjamas as it is a bit of a late night. Even if they manage to stay awake staring out the window in amazement at all the light displays, chances are they’ll be asleep in the car on the way back home!
