West Busselton’s Cloisters looks like it will again take the proverbial Christmas cake for the best light displays in the city.

Some of the most decorated streets include College Avenue, Sanctuary Grove, Edith Agnes Circle, and Dalemoor Way.

College Avenue in Cloisters is a great place to start your light trail.

Candy canes are being handed out by Santa’s little helpers on College Avenue, while workshop elves are offering goodies at Sanctuary Grove.

Several neighbours on Edith Agnes Circle have banded together for an epic street display.

Lollies are also being served here, and one property is even projecting Christmas movies onto its garage door.

The big man himself is making appearances in Peppermint Park on Dalemoor Way every night.

As always, one of the best in Busselton is on Dalemoor Way.

Not only does it boast an elaborate light display, there is also a snow machine and reindeer-led sleigh for family happy snaps.

Dalemoor Way features lights, a snow machine, a reindeer-drawn sleigh and Santa's workshop.

In the garage is Santa in his big chair, surrounded by hundreds of decorations and Christmas-themed collectables.

Santa Claus, and a few clones, have been appearing at lit up properties around town.

Geographe deserves an honourable mention for its lights this year.

The City of Busselton, Aigle Royal Developments, WIN Television, Dale Alcock Homes Southwest and The Deck Bar and Restaurant joined forces recently to offer Busselton’s first Christmas lights canal cruise.

The free event was booked out within 72 hours and canal residents can win $1000 if their property is voted as having the best display.

Vasse is another suburb to check out — be sure to go to Belltonia Way. You can’t miss the house with six white boomers on the roof.

The display has been designed as a walk-through experience with carols timed to the lights.

If you are in the Busselton CBD, a community Christmas tree has been erected in Mitchell Park.

The 6.5m aluminium structure was created and designed by local tradesman Lincoln Higgins with the help of City councillor Lyndon Miles.
