IT can't be found on any map but thousands of people are expected to find their way to Candy Cane Lane at Woodridge this Christmas.

Located off Rudge St, construction of the lolly-filled lane started in February this year and is set to open to Christmas lovers of all ages on December 1.

The first sod was turned in the garage of the festive season's number one fan, Faye Trewick.

Each year she spends six months preparing one of Logan's most extravagant Christmas lights display.

"I've done so for the past nine years," she said.

"This year I have a Candy Cane Lane, an enchanted forest, beach and snow scenes, a nativity scene and more."

The brightest part of her display, Candy Cane Lane, is filled with thousands of fake lollies, fairy floss and chocolates - all made of foam and hand-wrapped by Ms Trewick.

"I started working on it in February before packing it all away and bringing it out again in August," she said.

"Since then I've worked on it every day.

"Each year the display gets bigger and bigger and I'm already planning for next year's.

"I just can't help myself."

While Ms Trewick said her display was about putting smiles on little faces, it was also a way of giving gratitude to the Mater Mother's Hospital after her battle with breast cancer.

"They were so good to me while I had cancer," she said.

"When I left the hospital I wanted to help them so each year I leave a tin out so people can leave a donation when they visit the display."

Mrs Trewick, and her friend Vic, who helps bring her displays to life each year, welcomed more than 3000 visitors last year.

The display will be open to the public from 7pm to 10pm from December 1-26 at 12/33 Rudge St, Woodridge.
