From 16 June to 30 July, this breathtaking interactive experience will immerse West Australians in an inspiring, after-dark journey along a 1.8km trail through the iconic WA Botanic Garden.

The Lightscape spectacular, which has captivated millions in cities across the world, has been seen only once before in Australia. After wowing sell-out audiences in the UK and the US, it made its Australian debut in Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens this year to rave reviews.

From the 100,000 tiny, twinkling illuminations of the Winter Cathedral, to the brilliant colours of the Neon Night Gardens with their jumbo-sized floral light sculptures, Lightscape is a masterpiece of light, sound and colour for young and old. A number of unique features with a WA twist are also being developed especially for Perth’s Lightscape extravaganza with input from local artists.

First developed for botanic gardens 10 years ago at England’s world-famous Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Lightscape has captivated global audiences. More than two million people experienced Lightscape across the world in the 2021 season alone.

This a ticketed event with limited dates, be quick to ensure you don't miss out on this internationally acclaimed sensation of light! Tickets are available through Ticketek from 10:00 am AWST Friday 9 December 2022.
