Coleman Avenue, Kew East Christmas Lights
Coleman Avenue, Kew East Christmas Lights

The Christmas lights at 19 Coleman Avenue, Kew East, were well known for bringing joy to the community each Christmas. The display owner, who was an electrical engineer, created a stunning display of 80,000 to 100,000 lights. These lights, crafted in their garage and set up every October, became a much-loved tradition.

The display at 19 Coleman Avenue, Kew East 


If you are wondering "Are the Kew East Christmas Lights going ahead this year", we can let you know that earlier this year, the house at 19 Coleman Avenue was sold.


The new owner acknowledges it would be a massive task to match the previous owner's spectacular lights and that it would be near impossible to meet community expectations, as such they have decided not to put a Christmas Light display on the house at the present time.


The new owner explained, "The previous owner, an electrical engineer, had 80-100,000 lights. Setting up in October each year was a big job! We've decided not to put up anything and want to spread the word that the lights here are taking a break. It's tough thinking about disappointing people!"



Despite the break in the lights, it's worth noting that, in past years, the Kew East community came together and raised over $20,000 for various charities. This generous support from the community has made a positive impact on different causes.


As of now, there's no confirmation about whether the previous owner will continue their impressive displays at a new property in the future. The new owner has spent the last six months grappling with this transition and has made the tough decision not to continue the tradition this year, which we fully understand!
