Greenbank Christmas Extravaganza

Experience a wonderful night in a unique celebration with local firefighters. Activities in this free event include Christmas lights, fire safety and awareness, Santa’s cave, Fireworks spectacular and watching a movie as well. Make yourself ready for fire emergencies, with local emergency services, fire engines and police informing you what needs to be done in case of an emergency.

2017 Supermoon in Queensland

Supermoon happens when the moon comes very close to its orbit around the earth, resulting in a brighter shade. Even though there are generally three supermoons in a calendar year, 2017 will witness only one on the 4th of December. Look out for the Supermoon as it rises half an hour after sunset, sneaking up over the horizon, just as the sunlight fades. In Queensland, this phenomenon will happen just after 7 in the evening, and the moon will be at the highest around 12:30 AM.

Boudoir Bazaar Fashion Market’s Definitive December Deliration

Deliration means ‘delirious or frenzied behaviour’, and there can’t be a better word to suit the Boudoir Bazaar Fashion Market. Happening at the Chermside Bowls Club on the 3rd of December, this is the most exciting garment and accessory marketplace in Brisbane, with a wide array of stallholders in place to make your wardrobe renovation an enjoyable experience. Organisers are expecting a massive turnout in a shopping frenzy, with high-end fashionable attires by renowned designers. You will be literally blown away with thousands of vintage fashions at your disposal!

1980s Movies at Lumen Room

On the 8th of December, catch some classic and cult film favourites, including the likes of Princess Bride, The Gate and the Toxic Avenger. Princess Bride is a fairy-tale classic about Princess Buttercup who is separated from her true love Wesley. There will be sword fights, princes and giants battling it out for an epic blend of romance, adventure and action. Another show to watch out for is the Toxic Avenger, where a nerd guy catches on fire by landing in a vat of toxic waste. By transforming into an avenger, he goes on a crime-fighting binge, making up for a total horror comedy.

Gift of a nutcracker comes alive with a blizzard of ballerina revealing a charming Land of sweets and a Prince taking her on a fairy tale adventure. With a lively and lavish set of costumes and the splendid music of Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker by Ben Stevenson is a must-watch show.

Jan Powers Farmers Markets 2017

The city doyenne and a foodie, Jan Power had a vision of hosting a dedicated farmers market in Queensland, almost 30 years back. She always had a passion to support farmers by displaying their fresh produce, and highlighting their efforts behind it. Initially it was conducted in the Brisbane Powerhouse Site, but has certainly grown its base in other locations. The main focus is to educate people about the food’s origin, and to change their purchase behaviours. This is the place where families connect with each other, in a vibrant ambiance.

Christmas Table Wreaths at Francesca’s Floral Workshops

With all the fragrant bouquets, flower décor and special workshops on offer, this little shop will be spreading loads of happiness on the 21st of December.
