As Andy Williams once sang, Christmas is ‘the most wonderful time of the year’. It’s the combination of school holidays, daylight saving, warm summer weather, and the joy in people’s faces that make Christmas so special in Australia.
But the thing that really makes Christmas so special, (other than the jolly man in the red suit) is the spectacular light displays in our neighbourhood. Driving around, looking at all the wonderful, sparkly lights and displays never wearies! It is a magical wonderment for the young and old.
Here, at Adelaide Mums Group, we have you covered with the ‘must see’ streets this Christmas.
Christmas Light Search has done all the hard work of compiling streets within your area that are ‘Christmas light’ ready. All you need to do is enter your postcode in the search bar, and voila, a map appears with drop pins on the areas that have displays. Planning on decorating your house?

We must also not forget The Lights of Lobethal. With a history of over sixty years, it is no wonder the Lights of Lobethal are the largest community light display in the Southern Hemisphere!
Situated in the Adelaide Hills, Lobethal has been a family favourite for exuding Christmas spirit and cheer. The local community band together to create a festival that is not to be forgotten.
Lobethal are also hosting a Pageant Night on Saturday 23rd December from 6:00pm - 10:00pm.
While you’re visiting Lobethal, you must also take a look at Bill & Peg’s Christmas Down Under. Their house on Christmas Lane (what a magical coincidence!) has been an attraction for over 30 years.
Lighting of the Christmas Tree at Victoria Square will be held on Friday 1st December. There will be live music, and plenty of food trucks at this FREE event. The festival starts at 6:00pm, and the official lighting of the Christmas tree will be at 8:15pm.
