The best Christmas light displays in every capital city

North Bondi house

Laser light shows, snow machines, giant inflatable Santas and even a donkey – yes a real live donkey – some streets go above and beyond to spread the Christmas cheer, and we have sourced the best in each capital city around the country.

Is there a better way to get the whole family in the festive mood than a Christmas light street crawl around your neighbourhood once the sun sets? We think not. Take things up a notch by packing everyone a special treat bag full of rocky road, candy canes, gingerbread biscuits, and some glow-in-the-dark or fairy light wearable accessories.

All that’s left to do is set your Spotify Christmas carols playlist to shuffle, buckle up, start your engine and you’re good to go.
