Our marine city is filled with more than 200 ornately decorated homes, shimmering with millions of Christmas lights. The elaborate installations cast brilliant bursts of colour and reflections across the channels.

Renowned as Mandurah and Perth’s best Christmas lights ~ and the biggest display in Western Australia ~ each year we proudly host thousands of families and people of all ages to share in this festive extravaganza.

We present Mandurah’s Christmas lights from a fleet of safe and comfortable cruise boats. View our cruise options to choose the most suitable for you.
