We are proud to announce that Explore Adelaide will be hosting a South Australia wide Christmas light map this year. Have a look through our interactive map below to see what’s going on around you.

The festive season is fast approaching. Within weeks we’ll start to see the glistening of Christmas lights and a forest of ornament filled trees. One of the best things to do at this time is to scour the streets for amazing Christmas light displays. This is why we’ve created our Christmas light map, ready for you to find the best Christmas lights and events around.

How it Works

When it comes time to start the trek for twinkling lights, simply check in with our map to find some of the best displays around. Our map will show you houses or whole streets that have put up Christmas lights, as well as special Christmas events in the area.

If you find any Christmas lights that aren’t on the map or would like us to add your own house to the map, simply send us a message. We’re interested in more than just Adelaide, let us know about any lights in South Australia.

When do the Christmas Lights Start?

Everyone puts up their lights at different times. Some start in November after the Credit Union Christmas Pageant and others will start mid December. Where possible we will include the start and end dates for Christmas lights or events.

Christmas events will be added to both the Christmas lights map and our calendar to make it easier to find event information. We don’t want anyone to miss out on any events or magical light displays.

Tell us about your lights

We want to make sure we have as many lights and events as possible on our Christmas light map. If you see somewhere we have missed or you’d like your own house added, send us a message and we’ll add it to the map for you.

Try to give us as much details about the display as possible. Information about the type of display you have and the duration of your display are helpful tidbits to add. Also if you have any other houses on your street displaying, let us know and we’ll add them too. The more you tell us, the better we can make it for everyone.

This is the same for any Christmas events you want us to add as well. This is one of the most magical times of the year, so we want to help make it special for everyone.

The Next Step

After you’ve sent in information for any Christmas lights or events and searched our map for the best places to go, the only thing left is to plan your trip and to go and check out some amazing light displays.  Take some time with the family to relax and see some of the best lights around. You wont regret it!

Don’t forget to zoom out to see what is going on out past the suburbs.

For the best exploring experience, type your suburb into the search box, and click the full screen icon in the top right corner of the map.
