Five giant bouncing blobs will drop into Darling Harbour so you can feel as weightless as you would on the moon.

It's hard to watch footage of astronauts gallivanting on the moon — with their lack of surefootedness and giddy delight — and not want to have a go. Unfortunately, there's a decided lack of accessible planetoids for us non-astronauts to do it on. But, in good news for earth dwellers, we've found an experience that will get you kinda close.

Moon Drops is like NASA's version of a jumping castle: humongous black bouncy globules that allow you to feel what it would be like to run across a droplet of water, which we imagine feels a lot like the moon. NZ architecture firm Jasmax has collaborated with Alt Group and the Auckland Council Public Arts to bring the joys of space to Sydney — five drops will pop up around Darling Harbour for for the duration of Sydney Festival. Don't forget to take off your shoes and play The Police's hit 'Walking on the Moon' to get you prepped for your moonwalking debut.
