Last winter, the spectacularly luminous Lightscape had all of Perth enchanted – and they’re set to return to King’s Park for an all-new immersive light, colour and sound experience.

Over seven weeks in June and July, Kings Park will transform into an illuminated winter wonderland designed by some of the world’s leading creatives, with a huge 1.8km of installations to explore – including the return of the iconic Winter Cathedral and its 100,000 tiny twinkling lights.

Amongst the new additions to Lightscape will be an impressive 70m long walkway of giant heart arches, 700 Sturt’s Desert Pea blossoms, a kaleidoscopic rainbow path, corridors of giant fibre-optic flowers and a breathtaking native meadow of 10,500 individual fibre-optic lights.

While we normally enjoy the view walking across the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, during Lightscape visitors will be able to explore the bridge from below, drenched in a 10m high waterfall of light cascading from above.

“People often visit Kings Park to look outwards, admiring the magnificent view of the Swan River, the city and the Perth hills in the distance,” explained Lightscape Creative Director Zoe Bottrell when she visited Perth last month.

Bottrell is the founder of UK-based events specialist Culture Creative, who developed their first outdoor art trails 12 years ago in the renowned Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

“Working with illuminations in the darkness of a winter’s evening means I can guide people to look at the detail of the landscape within the park.”

“The concept speaks to the spirit of Kings Park and what makes it so special.”
