Brisbane’s biggest, best, and most loved Christmas carols!

When you think of Christmas in Brisbane, there s no better event that spreads Christmas cheer than carols in the city. It is always a hit with the family, young and old and features some of Australia’s best up-and-coming artists as well as some old favourites. Logistically it’s not an easy thing to manage and is only made possible by the dedication of the countless volunteers, from the car park guides, painters, ushers, roadies and everyone in between.

Held at the Riverstage in Brisbane’s city botanical gardens the event can easily cater for the thousands of participants and spectators (not to mention the media crews!). There is no public parking in nearby so we advise all attendees to catch public transport if possible. There are plenty of options available so visit the event information page for more details.
