Looking for the best neighbourhoods and streets to find impressive light displays this Christmas? Here’s HOOD’s Melbourne guide for 2021.

If you decide to hop out of the car and take to the streets, remember to respect people’s property and adhere to any COVID rules that may apply, such as wearing masks or keeping your distance.

A wonderful Christmas to you and yours, from the team at HOOD.
