Mandurah Canals Christmas Lights Phenomenon

Community Event

1 Dec 2018 to 6 Jan 2019

Experience the magic of Christmas this festive season as millions of colourful lights illuminate Mandurah’s luxury canal homes and reflect onto the water. This magical spectacle occurs from December to early January as the residents hold a competition to see who has the best Christmas lights display.

There are waving Santas, snowmen, reindeers and sleds, dolphins, stars, snow globes, Christmas trees, opulent stairways, private jetties, watercraft and more – all sparkling with colour as carols are sung from balconies.

The best way to observe this phenomenon is from the water. Families and friends do so from their private boats or with Mandurah Cruises and Mandurah Dolphin Tours who operate Christmas Lights Cruises during this period.

The local Mandurah Rotary Club have also captured the moment with a floating wishing well raising over AUD70,000 so far for charities! Coins are thrown into the well by people cruising around enjoying the lights.
