Tropical Light Darwin

Move over, Vivid! Renowned artist Bruce Munro lights up the Tropical Capital with interactive, intelligent, luminous sculptures. Walk around taking in the exhibition ‘til your heart’s content, then we know the best place for you to crash!

Tropical Light Darwin – what is it?

Think Vivid, but steamy! Renowned artist Bruce Munro was commissioned by the NT Government to create eight luminous, meaningful sculptures, connected on a 2.5km self-walk loop by artworks from local artists, creating a glorious, colourful, interactive installation piece that introduces you to the Darwin CBD in a whole new way! Each sculpture has its own story and meaning and can be enjoyed during the day, but truly come to life once the sun sets and the stars begin to sparkle.
