Sky Castle

Wander through inflatable arches at this luminous pop-up installation in Federation Square.

Melburnians have spent plenty of time in their own castles this year. Now, with the city reopening, it's time to mosey through a giant inflatable version instead. From Saturday, November 14–Monday, December 14, Federation Square will become home to a luminous installation comprised of a cluster of colourful arches — as created by multidisciplinary studio ENESS.

Called Sky Castle, the towering pop-up will not only span the central Melbourne spot, but fill it with colour. The arches are designed to reflect a rainbow — and to bring a spot of brightness to the city after its tough experiences in 2020, like rainbows do after storms. Yes, that's what everyone could use right about now. And, they're interactive, too, changing their hues as you move through them.

As well as vivd tones, plenty light and sky-high arches, Sky Castle also includes a xylophone soundscape, which changes while you're wandering as well.

Entry is free, and you'll find Sky Castle at Fed Square from 7pm on opening day — open  7am–11.30pm daily during its month-long stint.
