Christmas Lights Trail 2019

City of Perth

Dec the Malls provided a number of installations for the City of Perth’s 2019 Christmas Lights Trail. The five striking feature displays were chosen to have maximum visual impact, while also allowing visitors to enjoy interacting with them in a safe manner.


The displays were provided on a hire basis for the event, inclusive of a 24 hour a day, call out maintenance service. As an outdoor exhibition conducted over a six-week period, critical consideration was given to the security, safety and longevity of each installation to ensure it was fit for purpose.

Engineering was also provided across all displays and a high level of project management was undertaken to ensure the correct and timely installation and removal within Perth’s public spaces. These included high traffic pedestrian malls as well as a feature, floating reindeer display located at Elizabeth Quay on the Swan River.

The event was held during Perth’s summer which features very long daylight hours, so it was imperative that the displays had visual appeal during the day as well as when lit up at night. In addition, the exposure of the displays to extensive sunlight hours required the use of suitable materials to ensure the longevity of the products.

Our displays included:

  • The spectacular 6.5m origami reindeer in Elizabeth Quay,
  • The dazzling Season’s Greetings welcome arch at the Perth Cultural Centre,
  • The interactive Christmas car, which visitors could sit in at Northbridge Piazza,
  • The stunning 4m origami fox on a gold plinth in Murray St Mall, and
  • The magical, interactive horse and carriage at Claisebrook Cove in East Perth.
