This after-dark light and sound show will take over the Royal Botanic Gardens.
UPDATE Monday, May 31: Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, Lightscape has been postponed indefinitely.
Walking through a 100-foot tunnel made of thousands of lights, under a canopy of glowing multi-coloured trees and between ribbons of flashing light — you'll be able to do all of this when when Lightscape heads to Australia for the first time this year.
After postponing the inaugural 2020 event, the after-dark light festival will be taking over the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria sometime this winter, with the exact date yet to be revealed. Prepare to see the garden illuminated by lots of immersive and large-scale installations. Scattered along a 1.5-kilometre route, the glowing artworks will also include floating lights on a lake, shining pavilions and sparkling trees, and will take about 90 minutes to explore
Having taken over gardens across the UK and the US, Lightscape has chosen our very own inner-city garden for its first journey Down Under. As well as artworks and sounds shows, we're told there'll be plenty of pop-up food and drink stalls scattered throughout — selling, we hope, mulled wine to keep hands warm during the chilly winter nights.
