Top 5 Suburbs for a Magical Night of Christmas Lights
Here is our list of the top suburbs for a magical night of Christmas Lights 2015. There are so many wonderful Christmas lights displays in Perth, many raising money for great causes too.
But if you are looking to spend a night out with your family, here are our top picks for suburbs to visit that have Christmas lights displays that are best seen by parking the car and wandering (or taking a boat tour) through the beautiful displays - so that you can spend the night out and enjoy a magical night of Christmas lights as a family.
22kms South of Perth
Atwell is located south of Perth and features several streets in close proximity with many houses in the street participating in Christmas Lights displays and Christmas Fundraising Events.
This large street is perfect for parking up the car and wandering through. There is easy parking at the reserve on Callistemon Approach. A large number of houses are beautifully decorated and they have a PMH Fundraiser Event each year. There are several PMH fundraiser tins throughout the street so take your spare change along and give generously.
Just a very short drive from Kanji Loop is Kennack Vista. A large number of houses also participate in Christmas Lights displays in this cul de sac. It's a nice quiet street, so you can park your on Woolhead Way, and walk up through the cul de sac and further down the rest of Kennack Vista also.
There are some great Christmas characters in the displays that kids will love getting up close to check out. This is also a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer - so take your change along and give generously.
After going around the cul de sac end of Kennack Vista, keep walking towards the other end and the street turns into Connolly Mews. There are less houses decorated down this end, but there is one at the end of Connolly Mews that puts on a fantastic display. Look for the gianormous Santa and Candy Cane.
They also have some great interactive features like a little cubby house little ones can enter and have a look inside. The Connolly Mews display collects for Fight Alzheimers Save Australia (TBC) so save some spare change to donate to this worthy cause also.

Prairie Dunes Place
Park the car a street or two away and allow 30-45mins to walk through this delightful cul de sac, where most the houses light up to raise money for The Association for the Bind in WA. Take some change along the kids will love putting it in the plastic guide dog shaped money boxes. Great community feel in this street, but don't try to drive through it, you may get stuck in traffic for a long while.
Check the facebook page regularly as the guide dogs pay the street a special visit before Christmas and you may just get to meet them on your visit.
