Mandurah – Visit the Capital of Christmas Lights

December 5, 2016 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The coastal city of Mandurah, only 74 km south of Perth, is often compared to a little modern Venice because of its spectacular waterways and canal living. But did you know that Mandurah turns into a little Las Vegas every year from December until mid-January?

The reason are Mandurah’s famous Christmas canal lights. The Mandurah residents who live on the canals like to dress up their houses for Christmas and often spend a fortune on their Christmas lights decoration. Over 200 houses along the canals are lit up all in the spirit of Christmas.

The end result is spectacular. Thousands of Christmas fairy lights illuminate and reflect onto the water from million dollar mansions lit up with decorations, waving Santas, reindeers, Christmas trees and flashing lights. A wonderland on water.

The best way to watch this spectacle is from a boat. Hundreds of boatloads of tourists and locals cruise by the houses taking photos and listening to Christmas tunes. So get on a cruise and feel the festive spirit of the season as Christmas carols play while you glide through Mandurah’s waterways and canals on dusk.

Ever popular, this delightful cruise experience becomes increasingly beautiful each year. Dress for the occasion, sing along with the Christmas carols and bring your Christmas cheer. This is a very special tour at a special time of the year.

If you hold a skipper’s ticket, you can also hire your own boat for your personal Christmas Lights cruise.
