Mandurah Christmas Lights Tour

Mandurah Christmas Lights on display

Cruise Mandurah's Spectacular Christmas Lights

From early December through to January the Mandurah Canal residents display a fantastic assortment of Christmas lights that offer an amazing experience to the general public. Hop aboard The Pirate Ship for a Christmas tour that combines two of our favourite things, Pirates and Christmas as we cruise through Mandurah's beautiful inland waterways and canals.

The Pirate Ship is an open air vessel offering the best 360' views, BYO on alcohol and of course a steering wheel for the kids!

There is a wishing well located within the canals, throw your money in and donate to the Mandurah Rotary Club which then distributes the funds to local community groups.
