From the 1st December, Mandurah's waterways will once again come to life with the spectacular Mandurah Canals Christmas Lights Displays.
This magical annual event sees Mandurah's luxury canal homes decorated with millions of illuminated Christmas lights and amazing Christmas themed-displays.

Adding to the festive atmosphere are FREE photo opportunities at the ferry terminal with Santa and his elves, plus Christmas carollers will add some Christmas cheer!

The Mandurah Canals Christmas Lights Competition raises money for the Rotary Club of Mandurah who distribute the donations to local charities. Mandurah Cruises vessels also stop at the floating wishing well so passengers can make a donation and wish. Last year over $21,000 was raised! Since the wishing well started, over $120,000 has been raised.
