The City of Perth Christmas Lights Trail

The City of Perth Christmas Lights Trail is back for its third year. The city will shine brighter this Christmas with 27 mesmerising light installations and vibrant Christmas decorations bringing Christmas joy and lighting up the evenings.

The brand new Christmas Lights Trail includes some from favourites from last year, but the journey is completely different! This year there are three mapped out journeys, that take you throughout the Perth CBD, Northbridge and East Perth – we did all three trails so we could see all the lights.

The City of Perth Christmas Lights Trail displays include:

#1 REINDEER GREETINGS, Perth Cultural Centre

As you start your Christmas Lights Trail journey, be greeted by two friendly reindeer standing at over 4 metres tall.

The Christmas Lights Trail took us a little over 5 hours to complete all 3 trails, that includes stopping for dinner, we walked the first 2 trails and drove to East Perth to complete the last.  I would highly recommend bringing a pram or stroller and wearing comfortable walking shoes. You can download the map online or pick one up from the iCity kiosk to ensure you don’t miss anything.
