Drive Yourself To See the Lights in Gold Coast
If you want to drive yourself, here are some good spots for checking out the Christmas Lights. The winners are announced in early December. Please note that people move or no longer participate in the lights competition from year to year, but the following information will at least give you an idea of where to look.
In the meantime, here are some good spots to check out the lights in several suburbs across Gold Coast, I am sure there are more, including some of the winners and entries for the Gold Coast Xmas lights competition. Remember that from year to year, people may move, so this is no guarantee that you will find the biggest and best in this list, but I know competition excites the neighbours, so it is likely that there will be lights to see!
I've tried to group them for you so you can find them relatively easily.
