The City of Perth has a stunning Christmas light display this year with 27 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 15th November to 26th December.
To find your way around, there are three maps available which will take you on your journey through Perth CBD, Northbridge 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

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.
A mesmerising and interactive light projection window where you can scatter the snowflakes with your hand movements. Located near Raine Square.
Right in the heart of Yagan Square, you will find Constellation Tunnel. A jaw-dropping light installation that you can walkthrough. Yagan square was alive with music, street performers, restaurants, bars and food hall.
Hop down to Council House (opposite St Georges Cathedral) to see a mob of illuminated Kangaroos.
A short walk to the corner of Barrack and St Georges Tce you will find an illuminated hot air balloon, have your photo taken in the basket
