Homes all over WA have lit up in bright colours and crazy displays once again, to raise money for mental health as part of the 2021 Synergy Christmas Lights Trail.
Children and adults alike can go online to find the best displays in their areas and plot their own trail, while raising thousands of dollars for charity.
We've started making our list of must-visit houses on the Christmas lights trail in Mandurah:
8 Meadow Springs Drive, Meadow Springs
Undoubtedly one of the best stops on the trail every year, Alan and Mary have once again gone the extra mile decorating their house. Originally from the USA, Mary goes big with decorations, with the fantastical display bringing in elements from all over the world. There are more than 400 trees ranging in size with different themes, including the Mandurah Estuary tree, the Barbie tree, the footy trees, the upside-down candy cane tree and even the golfing tree. The kids will love Santa's Workshop, snowing trees, the Christmas carousel and Santa's express train. Lights are on every night from 7.00pm - 9.30pm.
146 Peelwood Parade, Halls Head
This light and bright display has been created by a young Christmas-loving couple who hope to bring smiles to the young and old faces who come to visit. With a display consisting of a giant inflatable Santa and hundreds upon hundreds of lights, the couple might have achieved their goal of becoming the "brightest house on the street"... but that's for you to decide. Lights are on from every night, 8.00pm - midnight.
23 Elwell Street, Secret Harbour
Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, you are so very lovely! This fantastic display includes a 5m high, free-standing Christmas tree that has 5000 lights. The kids will love every single one of its twinkling lights, on every night from 7.00pm - 11.00pm.
22 Hartonia Ave, Secret Harbour
This display is created by a family with small children who love seeing seeing visitors be amazed by their house. The family is raising funds for Lifeline WA and if you visit on Christmas Eve, you may be lucky enough to get some lollies and spot some of the super heroes from the Marvel universe. Lights are on from every night from 6.45pm - 10.00pm.
Synergy spokesperson Kelley Yeats said the experience supports Lights for Lifeline, with mental health a key issue as many families are unable to get together for the holidays.
"We know that for Lifeline WA this is the busiest time of year and that much-needed funds are essential in training more crisis support volunteers to help those most vulnerable in our communities," Ms Yeats said
Homes around WA, no matter how big or small their display is, are invited to register to be part of the trail and welcome visitors to their lights display.
Visitors can now vote for their favourite displays on the trail, with voting closing at midnight on December 12.
