Winter is well and truly underway here in Perth, and it’s high time some warmth headed our way – queue Lightscape.
From now until Sunday 30 July, Lightscape is transforming Kings Park and Botanic Gardens/Kaarta Koomba into a winter wonderland of light, colour, and sound.
The breathtaking interactive experience has been leaving the people of Perth awe-inspired as they journey along a 1.8-kilometre trail in an after-dark setting through the park grounds.
Gaze upon 100,000 tiny, twinkling illuminations of the Winter Cathedral, and the brilliant colours of the Neon Night Gardens with its jumbo-sized floral light sculptures – to name two spectacular scenes at Lightscape Kings Park.
And although the Lightscape masterpiece has captivated millions of people in cities around the globe, no two installations are the same; meaning that you will be graced by a one-of-a-kind work of art designed just for Kings Park/Kaarta Koomba with various unique features with a Western Australian flare.
Having only toured to Australia once before, Lightscape truly is a treat. After wowing sell-out audiences in the UK and the US, it made its Australian debut in Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens in 2022 with brilliant reviews.
The global Lightscape concept is a collaboration between leading events promoter Raymond Gubbay Limited (RGL), a division of Sony Music Entertainment, and UK-based Culture Creative, who have been creating stunning winter light trails worldwide since 2013.
RGL Development Director, Joni Marks says, “Kings Park is one of the largest inner-city green spaces in the world and sits at the very heart of this lively, diverse and dynamic city.
“With our experience working with leading gardens around the world, this is a fantastic opportunity to see Kings Park at night filled with world-class light installations.”
And quite fittingly, Lightscape reaffirms Perth as the City of Light once again. Tickets to Lightscape Kings Park/Kaarta Koomba are essential, and if you haven’t already been, now is a better time than ever – before it says goodbye on Sunday 30 July.
