Cairns is not only one of Australia's most stunning costal locations, but is also becoming a hotspot for Christmas holiday goers both locally and beyond!

With good reason too! With enjoying a Christmas on the golden beaches of North Queensland, it's a holiday even Santa himself would be jealous of.

Cairns' annual Carols by Candlelight is a wonderful event with a wonderful cause, so bring a blanket and your best singing voices! (Song books available on the night.) There is also food, beverages, candles and glow stick products available for purchase to add to the ambience of the evening too. All proceeds go towards distributing food hampers to hundreds of local families in need. The festivities conclude with a fireworks display at approximately 8:30pm.

Locals also work up a storm each season putting up impressive christmas light displays for the annual Christmas light displays. Filled with fairy lights, rope lights, inflatables, hand-crafted decorations and christmas joy for everyone! Entries are announced on the Cairns Post official website once they have been finalised for the season, where not just the city but the suburbs come alive with lights and colour!
