The Best Places To See Christmas Lights in Auckland


It’s that special time of year, the time when you eat as much ham/seafood/turkey/pork/scones as your body can handle. When you pour copious amounts of alcohol into your mouth to help you forget about all the terrible things you said at the Christmas party.

It’s also a time when some crazy cats get out in the front yard and string up an absolute ton of lights, making their power bill soar to new heights.

These absolute legends are doing it all for you, so here are the best streets in Melbourne to check out Christmas lights.

North

The Boulevard

Ivanhoe

The most well known (and the busiest) Christmas light set up in the city. Totally worth the wait once you get a park. Most of the street gets involved, there’s generally a coffee cart there and you can get some great after dark views of the city.

Tennyson Avenue

Preston

A trip to Preston should definitely be on the cards for any keen Christmas light spotter. Tennyson Ave has a couple of houses that go big at this time of year.

It’s also worth making a trip to the nearby Gordon Grove where #47 has more than 40,000 lights on show.

East

Hugo Court

Narre Warren

Most of the houses in the court get on board to spread some Christmas cheer. It’s definitely one not to miss if you’re in the east.

Lebanon Crescent

Mulgrave

A trip to Lebanon Crescent will put you in front of more than 100,000 lights at #11. Check out the Polar Express as it makes its way around the track. Just a short walk to Wattle Grove will land you at #41 who have been at the Christmas light caper for more than 30 years.

South

Vialls Avenue

Parkdale

Venture down around the bay to Parkdale and you won’t be disappointed. The amount of houses getting involved on Vialls Avenue grows every year. It’s also worth skipping a couple of blocks over to Cedric Street and check out the seven houses on show.

Tennis Court

Mornington

The lights at #6 are switched on from 8:30 – 10:30pm, and they invested in a ton of new lights (72 new boxes of LED lights) for Christmas in 2016.

Dalgetty Road

Beaumaris

Head down to #151 to see an enormous display of lights that you can actually take a stroll through.

West

Crana Court

Hoppers Crossing

One of the OG Christmas light displays in Melbourne. This one’s been going strong for more than 20 years, get yourself west side and check it out.

Bellbridge Drive

Hoppers Crossing

It appears Hoppers is an absolute Christmas mecca for lights, check out #169 and #144 where the light displays have a little something for everyone.

There's also going to be a massive Christmas light showdown at Victoria Harbour in the Docklands, get the full rundown here.

This is just a small selection of all the great displays currently happening in the world’s most liveable city, check out Christmaslightsearch.com to find some that are closer to you.
