The Christmas Lights Trail in the City of Perth returns again, this time with 26 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 19th November to 2nd January.
This year the trail has been simplified to two routes; the Blue trail which takes you from Perth Cultural Centre to the shopping district at Murray Street. The Purple Trail will lead you from the Hay Street Shopping area to Elizabeth Quay and onto St Georges terrace. You can download the map online or pick one up from the iCity kiosk.
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.
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.
At Northbridge Piazza, 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.
Hop down to Council House (opposite St Georges Cathedral) to see Mooditj Yongas, a mob of seven illuminated Kangaroos.
