Load up the kids, it’s time to take a tour of the best and brightest Christmas lights in Canberra.

We’ve made it easier for you this year by breaking it down to our top picks on both the north and south sides.

With some houses shutting down streets, others having interactive features and walk-through displays, and a handful raising money for local charities, there’s so much to see this year.

Be sure to take some gold coins with you and keep a lookout for houses and streets fundraising for great causes including the Leukaemia Foundation, Christmas Lights for MS, Karinya House, Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund and more.
