And Just like that, Christmas is here!

The year of 2019 has been an impressive one for Clark Real Estate and as such we’re going to be taking a small but well-deserved break over the Christmas Holidays so that we can all check out the amazing light displays that the northern suburbs have put on, Yay!

 

If you’re new to the area or maybe the Grinch in you has just suppressed that urge to drive around hunting out the best streets to check out this year, we’ve don’t the work for you.

 

Here in the north, Banyo and Chermside West have really out done themselves this year, with 4 Huron St, Banyo taking out the Best Lights in 4KQ’s Annual Lighting Illusions Competition!! The house of God takes the gold medal in Chermside, yup that’s right, St Gerard Majella Catholic Church is truly a sight to behold, complete with a giant angel that overlooks the entire rest of the display!

 

Other houses you’ll want to take a gander at include Banyo’s:

  • 24 Ellamark Street
  • 20 Hilltop Place
  • 81 Froude Street
  • 40 Raleigh Road

 

In Chermside West these are sure to impress:
