Adelaide Christmas Lights 2020 | Best Streets to See Christmas Lights Around Adelaide

Ninth Avenue St Peters Christmas lights

Christmas Lights Adelaide


Every year the number of home owners who adorn their properties in sparkling lights seems to grow, making our suburban streets come to life after dusk.

It’s a fabulous FREE family activity to wander along and admire the huge effort some families go to, bringing Christmas cheer to their neighbourhood. 

As with all events, we encourage everyone to keep social-distancing and wear a mask in public to help keep everyone safe.

Christmas Lights Play & Go


It’s a real treat for the kids to be out at night, staying up a bit late. This is one of those times, when you see your child’s face light up with excitement, that you remember how beautiful it is to be in awe and wonderment over Christmas.

And how generous and kind it is for all these lovely people to dress up their houses in Christmas lights and allow so many strangers to walk and drive past every night during the Christmas season.


The photos above are of the lights along Ninth Avenue, ST PETERS. This is a must-see for Christmas lights.

While there are houses dotted all over Adelaide that are lit up beautifully, we do love a whole street where you can get out of the car and take a walk along the footpath to see the lights up close.
