The old gaol (above) in Guildford was built in 1840 and enlarged in the 1860s, during the convict era. The adjacent old courthouse (now the tourist information centre) was opened in 1867 and was partly built by convicts.
We were walking through the bushland of Kings Park in Perth recently and noticed this West Australian Christmas Tree (Nuytsia floribunda) that was just coming into flower. These striking trees are native to the southwest of the state.
Other lights in the Perth Christmas Lights Trail include the oversized candlesticks in Hay Street (above) and this huge Christmas tree bauble in Murray Street.
And this 20,000 pixel Christmas Constellation.
Perth Council House and its giant Christmas tree were also lit up for the Christmas Lights Trail.
St Georges Cathedral was also part of the Christmas Lights Trail in central Perth.
The normally staid exterior was brightened up amazingly by colourful animated projections, all with a Christmas theme.
