Christmas Lights in the Mandurah Canals

Each year, starting on or about Dec 1st, a lot of the houses on the canals in Mandurah (Port Mandurah and Waterside) dress up with Christmas lights. Some are quite spectacular.

Each night hundreds of boats pass through in a steady procession.

For those who remember Mandurah from years gone by, things have changed. This is where the Peninsula Hotel used to be.

Here are a sample of some of the houses.

They stay up til about the second week in January. Some owners stretch it out to Australia Day but most are down by then.
