If you’re in the CBD buying some last minute presents then make sure you check out the Christmas Lights Trail.
With a total of 30 stops across the city from Northbridge to West Perth, there’s a great variety of light installations to enjoy until January 3. Here are some of the highlights of the Central Red Trail, which begins at the corner of William and Hay Streets, where you’ll find installations as you walk along Hay Street Mall.
