Spend Christmas 2019 in Cairns with Koala Court

Make your Christmas unique by spending it in Cairns! Tropical Cairns has a fantastic atmosphere each December, where bright lights and markets take over Cairns Esplanade and annual Christmas events – such as Carols by Candlelight – provide plenty of festive excitement for the whole family.

Cairns is already gearing up for Christmastime, and with our cheap family accommodation Cairns resort, you can be all set for memorable December break in the heart of the merriment and cheer. Complete with summer arriving at the same time, there isn’t a more perfect time to book your Cairns family holiday!

At Koala Court Holiday Apartments, we offer one, two and three-bedroom apartment accommodation for couples, families and large groups in central Cairns. With us, here are just a few Cairns Christmas events to look forward to in December:

Christmas Lights Switch On and Lantern Parade 2019

The official “lights on” in Cairns is a sight to behold as Cairns Esplanade welcomes the beginning of Christmas in spectacular fashion! Join the Mayor of Cairns and a lively crowd on the Esplanade for the official lighting with eye-catching festive decorations to see, market stalls to browse, family-friendly entertainment to enjoy and a special guest appearance from Santa Claus.

This atmospheric evening is the best start to the Christmas season in Far North Queensland, which will be followed up by the annual Cairns Christmas Lantern Parade march from Fogarty Park Cairns to Esplanade Plaza. Christmas Lights Switch On and Lantern Parade 2019 will take place on Saturday, 30th November.

A Very Kransky Christmas at CPAC

The quirky Kransky Sisters are back this festive season with their popular annual show, A Very Kransky Christmas. If you’re looking to start Christmas with a bellyful of laughter, this eccentric trio is not to be missed when they stop at Cairns Performing Arts Centre for an evening of oddball Christmas covers and trademark Kransky anecdotes!

Famous all over Australia for their unconventional covers of famous pop songs – in which they incorporate tubas, musical saws, reed keyboards and various household items – The Kransky Sisters deliver a unique live performance that is both bizarre and hilariously entertaining. Catch A Very Kransky Christmas in Cairns on Friday, 6th December. 

Carols by Candlelight 2019

Cairns Carols by Candlelight is Far North Queensland’s biggest Christmas event. Held in Fogarty Park near Cairns Esplanade, this annual community singalong lifts the Christmas cheer during the Christmas Day countdown with a joyful evening of live carolling and fundraising that culminates in a colourful festive fireworks display.

Being free to attend, there’s no excuse to miss Carols by Candlelight 2019! Bring deck chairs, a picnic blanket and all your favourite people for this carolling spectacular in the park, which gathers local Cairns choirs, school dance groups and bands and a huge annual turnout of locals, holidaymakers and visitors from all over the region. It’s the ultimate Christmas celebration in Cairns, so make sure not to miss it on Sunday, 8th December.

The Best Christmas Pageant – Munro Martin Parklands

Just one week after Carols by Candlelight 2019, local theatre company Box Jelly Theatre Co. are elevating the Christmas spirit once again in Cairns with The Best Christmas Pageant Ever – their all-new festive show!

Taking over Munro Martin Parklands Cairns for one unmissable evening, this outdoor performance is a must-see for all ages, following a show-within-a-show story as director Grace tries to save Christmas when her annual Christmas Pageant gets crashed by five mischievous kids demanding lead roles. It’s literal show-stopping hilarity for young and old alike – find out what happens at its one-night-only performance in Munro Martin Parklands on Saturday, 14th December.
