The installation of new Christmas decorations in Town Square is set to begin tomorrow.

Council will install a brand new five-metre Christmas tree with lights and decorations, capped with a large LED star.

The tree will be accompanied by a 3.5-metre illuminated walk-through bauble, which will provide a great photo opportunity for locals and visiting families.

Meanwhile the light and visual installations currently being completed as part of the 'Australia's Heritage Perfectly Highlighted' project will also be used to give the city a more festive feel.

The Town Hall Facade, Art Gallery, and areas of Sturt Park will all be bathed in Christmas lighting

The Civic Centre' will also feature festive lighting, along with a series of projections of Christmas images.

Mayor Darriea Turley AM said she hoped the various attractions would bring some Christmas cheer to the city after the annual Christmas Pageant was unable to be held due to COVID-19 restrictions.

"Staff had actually hoped to get Christmas installations started on Tuesday but unfortunately the recent heavy winds have made it impossible," she said.

"But once this weather has passed we'll be in full swing and there should be plenty to see and enjoy across the city."
