MAP: Christmas lights aplenty despite lack of town trees

IT MIGHT be a habit in the weeks leading up to Christmas, as excitement around Santa's impending visit sees your little ones burst with anticipation.

For some families, it's a good excuse to walk off some of that festive indulgence.

But there's no doubt the journey to check out Christmas lights across the region is something many delight in each December.

To make your hunt for the best lights easier, we've compiled a map of reader-submitted suggestions on the best spots to see Christmas lights on the Tweed and Gold Coast.

Meanwhile, the Tweed's various CBDs are looking much less festive than usual, as trees which were destroyed in the March floods have not yet been replaced.

A Tweed Shire Council spokesman said they were working with the Murwillumbah and District Business Chamber to establish a Christmas tree sculpture for future years.

The council is also working with the Tweed Heads and Kingscliff chambers of commerce to agree on festive options for next year.

For Kingscliff, this might include decorating a Norfolk pine at the centre of the new Central Park.

Tweed Heads Chamber of Commerce president Warren Polglase said he was "disappointed” they wouldn't have a tree this year and said the lack of decorations made the town look "pretty average”.

Kingscliff Chamber of Commerce president Mark Humphries said while the loss of the trees was a shame, the ongoing works on Central Park complicated matters.

But with visitors already flowing into Kingscliff, he expected a good Christmas for the town's businesses, tree or no tree.
