It’s back! Following two immensely successful winter seasons, Melbourne’s beloved illuminated event returns in 2024. From June 14 to August 4, take an evening stroll through the Royal Botanic Gardens to enjoy glowing pathways, illuminated tree canopies, soothing soundscapes, and new installations.

“We are delighted to welcome Lightscape back for its third year. The Gardens offer a perfect backdrop for creating a magical world of light, nature, and wonder,” stated David Harland, director and chief executive of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. “In 2024, we have some surprises in store to enhance the experience for both returning and new visitors.”

This season, there is an updated 2.2km trail featuring stunning lakeside reflections, large-scale illuminated sculptures, and over 100,000 twinkling lights. New for 2024 is ‘Submerged’, an immersive installation where thousands of suspended lights change color in response to movement.

Making its Australian debut is ‘Lily’ by French artistic studio Tilt—a series of abstract, three-meter-tall glowing flowers that will enchant visitors of all ages.

Additionally, you can enjoy a bite to eat and warming drinks at the Welcome Zone or along the trail.


Give us a call on 03 9671 3855 or book online to reserve your table.
