Mushroomed at Cockle Bay Wharf

Twelve giant glowing mushrooms have sprouted at Cockle Bay Wharf.

Autumn might be mushroom season, but we bet you've never seen fungi quite like the ones that have just sprouted at Cockle Bay Wharf. The towering three-to-six metre tall 'shrooms are glowing in all colours of the rainbow. The 12 LED structures are the work of Aussie light sculpture artists Amigo & Amigo — a crew with a penchant for infusing public spaces with their playful, colourful creations.

The monstrous mushies are gracing Darling Harbour as part of this year's Vivid festivities, and while you can't eat them, you will find a special menu of glowing cocktails to enjoy while you're there exploring.

There are ten limited-edition drinks to choose from, each clocking in at $12 and served in a keepsake LED martini glass. Try Blackbird Cafe's peach, raspberry and elderflower Blue Heart Bliss, the triple-rum Smoked Zombie from Hunter & Barrel, or maybe Pontoon Bar's Star Wars-inspired take on the Sex On The Beach, the R2D2.

The mushrooms light up from 6pm each night and the majority of bars are open from 11am–11pm. To check individual opening times, head to the Cockle Bay Wharf website.
