Taronga Zoo is returning to Vivid Sydney this winter with Lights for the Wild, a breath-taking visual experience backed by American Express! From 24 May to 15 June 2019, Taronga Zoo will transform into a fluorescent wonderland you’ll never want to miss!
Awesome! So what can I look forward to seeing?
Taronga Zoo’s Lights for the Wild consists of three main highlights – a moving animal projection show, giant light sculpture trail and a 270-degree cinema experience.
1) Moving Animal Projection Show
Begin your adventure at Taronga Zoo’s magnificent heritage-listed main entrance as it comes to life with a captivating moving animal projection show!
2) Giant Light Sculpture Trail
Explore over 240 giant multimedia light sculptures as you wander through the magical, illuminated trails of Taronga Zoo! In addition to some of the festival favourites like the majestic Sumatran rhino and interactive chameleon, Taronga Zoo will be introducing four new installations including a trio of Sumatran tiger cubs to celebrate the birth of the zoo’s newly-born Mawar, Tengah Malam and Pemanah!
3) 270-degree cinema experience
Wind down and catch a multi-award winning animated short film favourite, reimagined as a revolutionary 270-degree cinema experience at the Taronga Centenary Theatre!
What makes Lights for the Wild so special?
This year, Taronga Zoo has centered their participation in Vivid Sydney on their efforts for wildlife conservation. Every installation and light sculpture aims to tell a meaningful story on the wild, and how we all have a part to play in conserving it. All ticket proceeds from the event will also go directly back to conservation and wildlife care.
