25 kilometres of brightly shining fairy lights will decorate the streets of Canberra’s center this Christmas.
The lights are switched on each evening at dusk and bring a sense of atmosphere and Christmas cheer.
“We’ve been lighting the city’s trees for the past three Christmas seasons,” said Linda Staite CEO of Canberra CBD Ltd. “This year we have rolled out more lights than ever before.
“They are popular with local businesses and all the people who come to the city at night. They bring out the beauty of our city center by accentuating the tree lined streets.
“We now have approximately 25,000 metres of lights in the city and we will continue to add more in years to come.”
The lights source their power from the street lights and are not harmful to the trees in which they decorate.
