Christmas Lights in Ryde & Surrounds

Switching on from the 1st weekend in December, neighbourhood Christmas light displays are undoubtedly a favourite Christmas activity for the whole family. We’ve put together a list of the best local streets to get your fix this year.
PLEASE NOTE: due to COVID some houses may not be decorated this year. If you are aware of a street or house we haven’t mentioned please email us at

North Ryde

  • Chauvel Street
  • Schumack Street
  • Cutler Parade

These are regarded as some of the best streets in the area with loads of houses to see plus an ice cream van to boot! Best to go on foot.

Also worth checking out around North Ryde:

  • Pindari Street
  • Gibb Street off Kent Road
  • Farrington Parade


  • Stephen Avenue (off Quarry Road near Midway Shopping Centre)

This is a cracker of a street, with nearly every house in the cul-de-sac lit up including a golden archway at the end of the cul-de-sac. Don’t try to park too close, it gets very busy!


  • Gregory Street – a nice little cul-de-sac walk with about 10 houses lit up.


  • Oakes Road
  • Lindisfarne Crescent
  • Dunrossil Avenue
  • Windsor Avenue
  • Watton Road
  • Sydney Australia Temple – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 756 Pennant Hills Rd, Carlingford

  • Garling Street
  • Sutherland Street
  • Kinsellas Drive
  • Yallambee Road, Riverview

Honourable mentions

  • West Ryde – Forsyth Street and Brush Road

Further Afield
