The Christmas Lights Trail in the City of Perth returns for its fourth year with 30 amazing Christmas light installations and vibrant Christmas decorations aligning the streets, malls and arcades. My family and grandchildren immersed themselves during this magical time in the city. Their eyes lit up and it is so joyful to watch them. The Christmas Light trail runs each night, from the 20th November to 3rd January.
To find your way around, there are three maps available which will take you on your journey through Perth CBD, Northbridge, West and East Perth. You and your family will be amazed at the stunning lights, festive street decorations and enchanting animated projections on St Georges Cathedral. We loved the everchanging light projections and calming music on the Cathedral. You can download maps from www.visitperth.com.au
Visit the City of Perth Christmas Tree in Murray Street Mall, which plays a range of classic and modern Christmas favourites. This is the tallest installation on the trail, standing at over 12 metres high!
Many colourful street performers entertaining the children and parents all over the city. Snapped these Santa’s helpers on stilts and rollerblades in Forest Chase. Join in the Christmas spirit with entertainment on each Friday and Saturday nights from 6-9pm at Forrest Chase, Rain Square, Kings Square and Perth Cultural Centre. We went on both Friday and Saturday. I found the atmosphere on Friday more vibrant and festive with families, late-night shopping and city workers enjoying a meal and drink.
Right in the heart of Yagan Square, you will find Constellation Tunnel. A jaw-dropping light installation that you can walk through. Enjoy an immersive music and light show under a constellation of 16,000 lights. Yagan square was alive with music, street performers, restaurants, bars and food hall.
Hop down to Council House (opposite St Georges Cathedral) to see Mooditj Yongas, a mob of seven illuminated Kangaroos.
From 1 December 2020 to 31 January 2021, all CPP car parks will be offering 3 hours free parking on weekends and public holidays. Check out the map to find out what CPP car parks are closest for you to enjoy the Christmas Lights Trail!
You can download the map online or pick one up from the iCity kiosk to ensure you don’t miss anything.
