Back by popular demand, the runaway hit of Illuminate Adelaide 2021 returns to Adelaide Botanic Garden.

This Australian-first production from celebrated Montreal studio Moment Factory once again transforms the lush greenery of Adelaide Botanic Garden into an after-dark immersive experience, connecting guests to the natural world like never before.

After a sold-out season for its premiere run, Light Cycles’ encore season in 2022 is your chance to revisit or discover anew this world-leading blend of technical innovation and natural splendour right here in the city’s backyard.

From an ode to the setting sun in a tree-lined avenue to a spectacle of story and song in the garden’s Palm House, Moment Factory’s cutting edge use of light, lasers, projection and a moving original soundtrack promises to be as transcendent as ever — with a few new surprises.

Created by Moment Factory. Presented by Illuminate Adelaide in association with the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium.


Please be advised this event includes smoke, haze, dark pathways, uneven terrain and flashing lights.


Suitable for all ages
