Christmas is huge in Ipswich, an small city just to the south-west of the Brisbane metropolitan area. Each year it hosts a large range of private and public Christmas light displays for everyone to enjoy.



The Christmas Twilight Parade is another of the annual highlights, boasting impressive floats decorated to the hilt in lights, glowing lanterns and Christmas characters. 'A Star is Born' an annual singing competition and show is also presented at the main stage in d'Arcy Doyle Place.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the yard lighting competitions and displays as well as the parade! Over the years we've seen people dress up as their favourite Elf, reindeer, penguin or snowman, whatever best expresses the joy and fun of Christmas in Ipswich. Also, don't forget to bring your lanterns/light to light the way for Santa!


*Some seasons the Christmas Shack will have a pop-up store in Ipswich for the final months of the year. We rotate these pop-up stores with other locations each year such as Toowoomba. Please check the 'Locations' page here on our website or follow us on Facebook for more information.
