The Wanneroo Botanic Gardens has once again transformed into a 5-acre Christmas wonderland! The Magic of Christmas event can be experienced from 29th November to 7th January.
With over 100,000 twinkling bulbs, this year’s stunning light display is bigger and better than previous years and is a must-do this festive season!
From lights that highlight the stunning palms, pine trees and beautiful walking trails throughout the Gardens to a 7m high Christmas tree, giant Christmas baubles, raindeers and even Santa’s sleigh – there is so much to discover.
New for 2023 is a charming Santa Combi Van and a delightful Gingerbread House entrance.
Spectator admission to the gardens is just $8 for adults $6 for children. A family pass is $24. Entry is free for guests dining at Leapfrogs, playing mini golf and children under four. This year, to enhance your experience and reduce wait times, they’ve introduced two designated viewing sessions with the first session running 5pm to 7pm and the second 8pm to 10pm.
We opted to tee our visit up with a round of Night Mini Golf – there are 36 holes to puff your way through, including some newly refurbished ones. Glow in the dark balls are available.
Given Christmas is such an expensive time of year, I love that this is an affordable event for the whole family! It is also a lot easier on the kids than the Christmas Lights Trail in the City. We spent about 2 hours at Wanneroo Botanic Gardens enjoying the lights and atmosphere.
Before heading home, we stopped for an ice cream… is there a better way to spend a summer night in Perth?!
You can visit the Gardens anytime during opening hours, with 7pm onward being the best time for viewing the lights.
