If you're stuck for ideas on what to do with the kids this Christmas, why not take them to see Brisbane's Christmas lights by council bus?
The Brisbane City Council has been running bus tours since 1992, which allow residents to sit back and enjoy the show, without worrying about driving and traffic.
A great time out for kids and adults alike, the tour costs $22 for adults and $11 for pensioners, children and full-time students. Two adults and two children can get a family pass of $50. Purchases can be made through Ticketek but will incur a transaction fee – you can't buy them at door.
The tour is three hours long, and each bus route focuses on a specific area in Brisbane. If you're planning on seeing all of the decked-out real estate in Bulimba, make sure you're on the right bus!
If three hours sounds like a long time to be checking out lights with the little ones, don't worry, there are toilet and refreshment stops on the way. You can take your own food and drink with you as well, although you can't eat it while on the bus.
A fantastic way to fill a night of the holidays with a unique event for the children, the Brisbane Christmas light bus tour is just another reason why celebrating your holidays in Bulimba is great.
