Go west for the best Christmas lights! Why decorations in Sydney’s outer suburbs are FAR more impressive than displays on the ritzy north shore
- Christmas magic turned up in a surprising spot this year with Sydney suburbs switching on the festive magic
- An abundance of twinkling lights have been draped over roofs, fences and trees on many Sydney homes
- Extravagant displays have surprised many onlookers who have been touring the city when the sun goes down
Sydney’s streets have illuminated with a bit of Christmas magic this year, but the best displays have ended up in a surprising spot.
While the affluent north shore suburbs were gunning for the title of having the most dazzling displays, it seems west is best when it comes to a festive showcase.
Mosman had promised to be the suburb to beat with its annual Prince Albert St Christmas Lights party. Organisers claimed this year would be ‘more spectacular than ever’ with more than 100 luxury homes taking part.
But the western suburbs met the challenge, with homeowners in Glenmore Park, St Clair, Erksine Park, Colyton, getting into the full festive spirit, adorning their homes in thousands of colourful lights.
An abundance of twinkling lights were been draped on roofs, fences and trees.
Residents hauled out festive favorites such as Santa Claus and some reindeer figurines to top off the seasonal aesthetic.
The extravagant displays impressed onlookers who had been touring the city with their families in search of a bit of festive cheer.
