Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden will be joining in ‘Vivid Sydney’ to celebrate the 200th birthday of the gardens.

Vivid Sydney is pretty spectacular, but for the gardens to be lit up as well is really exciting.  Can you imagine how beautiful the Fig trees will look.

The website says there will be grand installations & 3D mapped projections “creating a wonderland of shimmering trees and dazzling bushes.”

The colonial sea wall at Farm Cove will become “a glimmering stretch of light art” & there will be a 60-metre long Cathedral of Light, “an immense arched tunnel made of tens of thousands of white LEDs which radiate gentle but brilliant light from all angles.”

Giant figs trees will be used for projections & there is the ‘Sentiment Cocoon.’  Sounds wonderful to me.

WHEN:  27th May – 18th June 2016

TIME:  6pm – 11pm

COST:  Free.  Enter through the Queen Elizabeth II Gates via the Opera House Forecourt.
