How to Get a Star

Printer-friendly version

One only needs to take a short walk around town to realize why Brisbane is also known as the "City of Stars" - the wooden stars perched atop houses and in front of businesses are hard to miss!  Many of these stars are decorated with holiday lights, so that on the first Sunday in December, when the Festival of Lights takes place, all the stars in Brisbane light up on the same night (by 4:00pm).  The result is a magnificent starry hillside which cars driving past Brisbane on 101 Southbound can see and admire.
