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 next winter.

Taking over the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria from June 19–July 19, the after-dark light festival will 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 currently making its US debut at the Chicago Botanic Garden, 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.

Lightscape will be just one of two very convincing reasons to get off the couch come winter 2020, too, with Melbourne Internationals Arts Festival and White Night also set to host their first combined festival during the cooler months.

Lightscape runs from 5.30–10pm Wednesday–Sunday.
