Want to simplify your Christmas lights visit this year?
Here are four streets where neighbours have come together to put on spectacular displays for visitors all in the one spot. Find more on the Synergy Xmas Lights Trail at xmaslightstrail.com.au.
Three neighbours pull out all the stops to light up their street and attract visitors from all over Perth. Their spectacular display is well worth the visit, where you will catch Santa’s workshop in action – ‘smoke’ coming out of the chimney and elves you can see working through the window, as well as a train track. They’ve also got an abundance of lights, of course, to make the whole street come to life. On top of that, the neighbours raise valuable funds for Perth Children’s Hospital (PCH).

This neighbourhood are united in their fundraising goal and come together to welcome visitors each year, while raising more than $20,000 for Wheelchairs for Kids. Each year the neighbours on this cul de sac add to their displays, which this year is bigger and better than ever and the atmosphere of the street alone makes it well worth a visit.
These neighbours have been lighting up in the name of both Christmas spirit and charity for some 20 years. Nine houses in this cul de sac put on dazzling displays to share with visitors. They put in countless hours to plan their display which includes a Santa corner, lights synced to music, a photo booth, window display with an alpine village, lasers, bubble machine an impressive inflatable display.

The kids will love this festive extravaganza cleverly coordinated by the neighbours of this friendly cul de sac. The neighbourhood get together in the middle of the year to plan their lights display, then combine their efforts and create a coordinated spectacle especially for children (refer to interview with Ian). Kids were mesmerized by the performances synched to music and lights featuring favourites such as Bluey, Paw Patrol and Trolls and loved dancing under the snow.
If you are visiting lights displays this festive season, make sure you pay a visit to Yagan Square. In the heart of the city, the Lights for Lifeline Christmas tree stands tall and is lit with more than 47,000 lights. Each light represents a West Australian who called 13 11 44 over the past 12 months. Not just beautiful to look at, it is worth a visit before exploring the rest of the lights in the city just to pause and reflect that, while Christmas is a magical time, for so many in or community it can be the hardest time of year. The tree symbolises lives saved and is about reminding people to reach out in challenging times.
Synergy is again supporting Lifeline WA through the Synergy Xmas Lights Trail, to both promote the important cause and help raise funds to train more crisis support volunteers.
