Ah yes it’s that time of year again.. school finishing up.. holidays nearing.. the mad Christmas rush at the shops has begun..  Yes, it’s only a month ’till Christmas!!

It’s that time of year when you can’t drive anywhere in the neighbourhood at night without the little ones excitedly pointing out some Christmas lights.

The ritual of Adelaiders’ proudly decorating their homes with stunning displays of lights and Christmas scenes just has to be seen and appreciated. Once the sun goes down, our suburban streets are transformed into magical wonderlands.

Checking out Adelaide’s Christmas Lights is a fantastic outing for your kids. The warm weather, the longer nights and the excitement of Christmas drawing near means going on a Christmas light adventure is one of the ultimate pre-Christmas family activities.

Watch their little faces light up in excitement as they feel the magic of Christmas.
