It's fabulous, festive and FREE
The City of Perth Christmas Lights Trail is back this year and it's just brilliant! The city is shining brighter with these 18 visually delightful light installations dotted around the city. Lights are switched on at 6pm every day until 24th December 2018.

There are two self-guided trails. The green trail is shorter and perfect for those that want to see some visual delights without walking too far. The vibrant decorations are all located from the Perth Culture Centre through to Yagan, King and Queen squares. The red trail takes you from Forrest Chase to Stirling Gardens or visa versa.

You can pick up a map from the information centre in Forrest Chase or download the map here.

You will see wonderful moving projections to the sound of music that will keep you transfixed at St George's Cathedral.

And a tinsel tunnel that is very glamorous and shimmery.

The Tinsel Tunnel

Marvel at the 100,000 lights twinkling in an array of colours at Santa's Magical Castle and experience the magic by walking through the castle. You will be forgiven for thinking you are in Disneyland!

In Yagan Square, you will find a spectacular train (which you can sit on) by the Lifeline Christmas tree. The tree is lit up with over 46,000 lights which represent those who have been brave enough to call Lifelife's number 13 11 14.

This waterfall of lights is stunning. Lay on the grass underneath the festive lights; it was mesmerising.

Santa's Secret Elves have their headquarters in Kings Square. Catch a glimpse of what happens behind closed doors in these delightful window displays.

We chose to walk both trails as we wanted to see all the lights and it took us around 2.5 hours.

There are other street decorations in-between some of the stops and all the children enjoyed themselves and didn't get bored in the slightest. We sang some Christmas songs when there wasn't anything to look at and it worked a treat to keep everyone entertained.

I loved all the decorations, but I think my favourite were the giant kangaroos covered in hundreds of gorgeous fairy lights. They are dramatic, eye-catching and impressive. A treat for all locals and overseas visitors, a must see in Perth this Christmas.

I haven't featured all the installations as you need to see it for yourselves. It is so worth it and a big thumbs up to the City of Perth.

The Christmas Light Trail should be on everyone's list of things to do this festive season. It's for the young and old and believers and non-believers.

It's also fabulous and free!

Both trails are wheelchair and pram friendly.
