Lightscape in the Melbourne Botanic Gardens

It is that time of the year again… when the companies make a fortune promoting the chilly weather. They’re saying “C’mon lazy people get out and have fun”. So last Saturday that is what we did. Gave our precious $120 (for 3 people) of hard earned money to watch a winter light show at the Melbourne Botanic Garden.

It is called Lightscape… and as the person in the exit informed us…it was a 2.2 kilometre walk around the park.

We started our walk from the tram stop.

Then to the entrance of Lightscape

With interesting background music and play of lights… ‘twas a wonderful experience! Just not sure if you can view it. I haven’t posted videos lately.

Some lights featuring aboriginal themes.

Then came the rain…but that didn’t dampen the mood!

      Glad you like it. Maybe this is another reason why my knee hurts. Well, nothing can stop me haha

    This sort of festival/event has become very popular in London too, in our winter, and we usually try to go to at least one. This looks like a great example!

      True. Cold is one thing but when it rains as well… glad it didn’t rain for long. Thanks Sarah for the comment.

  4. This looks fun! Liverpool had a similar thing called The River of Life last November.
