The Best Streets to See Christmas Lights in Melbourne 2023

Rawdon Court, Boronia

They really know how to turn the twinkly lights on at 11 Rawdon Court, Boronia! Every year their light displays get better and better, and we have a feeling 2023 is going to be one of their best years yet!

Over 50,000 lights, including moving displays, nativity scenes, inflatables, window displays, laser projections, Christmas statues, and more, will be on display until midnight every night over the festive period - we can't wait! Check out their dedicated Rawdon Court Facebook page for updates.

The Most Joyful Christmas Events in Melbourne 2023

Endeavour Drive, Cranbourne North

Head to 83 Endeavour Drive in Cranbourne North to see loads of giant inflatables, walk-in displays, laser projections, and more.

63 Grande Road in Sandringham put on one epic Christmas lights display last year, so let's all hold fingers they'll be whipping out all their best features for 2023! Expect to see Christmas lights programmed to music, inflatables, window displays, Christmas statues and more. 

Tennyson Avenue, Preston

The notion of "go big or go home" is not lost on a few houses in Tennyson Ave - they go very big, at home! Get ready to get in the festive spirit.

Octavia Court, Burwood

With more than 16 years of house-decorating tradition, 11 Octavia Court is rumoured to be one of the favourite streets to see Christmas lights in Melbourne for 2023! The festive house is usually decked out with lasers, inflatables, a nativity scene, snowmen, LED Christmas trees, artificial snow, Christmas music and more. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac, it is ideal for families with young children to explore. 

Rochdale Drive, Burwood East

Not to be missed, this gorgeous light display at 35 Rochdale Drive usually boasts a Father Christmas pathway to walk on so you can look at the display up close. 

Fellows Street, Mitcham

Over 35,000 fairy lights usually adorn 35 Fellows Street when they flick the switch at Christmas. Sometimes there is a huge inflatable Santa, Sleigh and Reindeer, snowman and gingerbread man. Grab a candy cane as you watch the laser light show and sing along to continuous Christmas carols.

8 Fellows Street is also rumoured to be jumping on board and putting up their Christmas lights in Melbourne 2023.

Lebanon Crescent, Mulgrave

11 Lebanon Crescent in Mulgrave usually deck the house with more than 100,000 lights that come alive in Christmas splendour. In previous years there's even been a Polar Express making its way around a track and a snow machine, reindeer, animated Santas, musical singing Santas, bubble machines, and more. Number 11 has even won awards for its efforts! This top spot is not yet confirmed for 2023 - stay tuned!

Just a little further down is another king of the Christmas lights in Melbourne fiesta at number 41 Lebanon Crescent - also not yet confirmed but well worth a stop-in if they do!

Eames Avenue, Brooklyn

Months of preparation go into the Christmas lights at Eames Avenue in Brooklyn. While they're not yet confirmed for 2023, everyone is usually invited to come and see the spectacular display at 31 Eames Avenue. In previous years, the epic walk-in display featured over 100,000 LED rope lights, fairy lights and icicle lights, Christmas snowing musical street lamps and so much more. 

The Boulevard, Thomastown

The festive folks at 118 The Boulevard have been a regular family favourite for Christmas lights in Melbourne since 2004, with all proceeds going to the Heart Foundation. This display hasn't confirmed whether or not they'll be going ahead with a 2023 iteration, but it's safe to say we're hopeful!

Langbourne Drive, Narre Warren South

Santa’s Toy Workshop, a full front yard of lights, a rooftop display with lots of inflatables, snow, candy canes, and donations to support Make-A-Wish Foundation is how the festivities usually roll at 116 Langbourne Drive. Although not yet confirmed for 2023, we hope the Langbourne Drivers pull something together for Christmas lights in Melbourne 2023!

Vialls Avenue, Parkdale 

If you're in the Parkdale area, head over to Vialls Avenue for some Christmas light sightseeing and you won’t be disappointed. Quite a few houses get involved on Vialls Avenue every year and get decked up with oodles of sparkling lights. It’s also worth skipping a few blocks over to Cedric Street to check out the houses there.

Wonga Park

A whopping 80 per cent of Glenpark Drive in Wonga Park will be covered in twinkly lights this year with seven houses dressing up for the festivities! 

Cooper Street, Sunshine

They've been putting Christmas lights up at numbers 12 and 20 Cooper Street for years to create Walsh's Christmas Wonderland! Step inside and walk through the gates where there are thousands and thousands of lights, inflatables, a village window, a nativity scene and much more await you. This display is officially confirmed for 2023 - woot woot!

Aintree Street, Mooroolbark

Thousands of glittering lights, decorations, giant inflatables, music, and more will create a stunning roof display on Aintree Street. If you come on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, you might also hear Christmas carols. 

Boyd Close, Mooroolbark

Also in Mooroolbark, Boyd Close put on an epic Christmas lights display in 2022, so we're hoping they dust off their roof decorations, inflatables, wooden cutouts, and Santa sleighs for another festive year!

Purtell Street, Bentleigh East

The folks over at 37 Purtell Street will be giving us all the enchanting Christmas feels with their lights display this year - one to add to your list!

Tennis Court, Mornington 

Sam's Christmas Lights, or as locals refer to them, "Tennis Court Christmas lights" are by far one of the most popular Christmas light displays in Melbourne. Sam is super passionate about his Christmas light displays and certainly goes the extra mile to make sure visitors are left spellbound. Other houses along the court are also usually decorated in bling.

Dalgetty Road, Beaumaris

Melburnians regularly rely on Dalgetty Road to be lit up with festive light displays. 151 Dalgetty Road usually have a huge display of 500,000 lights. Walk through the garden to find the amazing window with the Christmas Village. This display has not yet been confirmed for 2023 - stay tuned!

The Hoppers Crossing community really comes together to put on fantastic Christmas lights in Melbourne. The Crana Court Christmas lights have been shining bright for the last 20+ years and are worth a visit. Don't miss the amazing displays at Whitsunday Drive, Picardy Court, Hogans Road, Julier Crescent, Gildon Court, Wilson Crescent, Bellbridge Drive and Goates Court. Some of the streets close off to traffic on weekends and busy nights to allow visitors to stroll through and take in the festive spirit.
