West Perth is easy to get to, you can either jump on the Red or Yellow CAT from Perth Station which will drop you right along Hay Street in West Perth. Here is where you’ll find the final stops along the entire Christmas Lights Trail – numbers 29 and 30!
29 SANTA'S THRONE

Number 29 is Santa’s Throne. Have a quick rest on Santa’s personal bauble throne and while you’re there, don’t forget to take a happy snap.
30 SANTA'S BOOT

And the last stop is Santa’s Boot. Uh oh, Santa’s lost his boot in West Perth and it’s started growing a Christmas Tree! This colourful festive feature is lit up with nearly 14,000 bright lights.
If you’re visiting the Trail during the day, there are plenty of brunch and lunch options in West Perth!
You can’t go past one of the hippest locales on the scene – Gordon Street Garage, where you can get your coffee fix while chowing down on their delicious breakfast pancakes. If you’re on a health kick, Eat Drink Raw serves plant-based breakfasts, lunches and deserts!
You can enjoy your lunch break outside and be accompanied by a free musical performance thanks to Sidewalk Sounds. Happening on November 26 and December 4, Sidewalk Sounds will be popping up at 1217 Hay Street (across from Joe's Bakery).

Once you’ve finished beating the pavement, take a picnic and spend the afternoon overlooking Perth at one of the world’s biggest inner-city parks. Kings Park offers plenty to do too, you can take the kids to the many playgrounds, or go for a self-guided walk to admire the hundreds of wildflowers that call Kings Park home.
