The Tablelands are glowing, flashing and sparkling after Tablelands Regional Council’s Tablelands Shines Christmas Lights Competition received 33 individual and four street entries.
The winners were announced at the Ordinary Council meeting today in Malanda.
‘It’s great to see so many houses and streets vying for recognition,’ said Councillor David Clifton.
‘Councillor Bernie Wilce and I travelled across the Tablelands with our wives who were the community judges.

- First place residence — 8533 Kennedy Highway, Atherton
- First place street — Danzer Driver, Atherton

‘There are so many amazing houses and streets out there and I can’t encourage you enough to grab your family and head out for an evening drive.
‘Our creativity and community spirit are alive and well this festive season.
‘Thanks to The Express for their sponsorship of the awards,’ said Councillor Clifton.
