8 – 11 February @ Kings Park ·
Presented by Nigel Jamieson, Richard Walley, Zoe Atkinson and
Sohan Ariel Hayes ·

Let’s celebrate this land we share.

Over four extraordinary nights Kings Park is magically transformed into a cathedral of light, sound and imagery in which the trees come to life.

State of the art technology and the natural world come together for this spectacular walkthrough experience – where great flocks of birds fly overhead and animals dance and play. The event culminates with a light installation dedicated to the protection of the beautiful part of the world we live in – made in collaboration with thousands of young people across WA.

Created in association with the Noongar community, scientists and botanists, Boorna Waanginy explores the inter-connectedness of all life, the fragile beauty of South West Australia’s landscape and the threats it now faces.

Friday 8 Feb – Monday 11 Feb 8pm-11pm
