This winter, take a walk on the bright side and head to Tondoon Botanic Gardens as one of Gladstone’s favorite events, Luminous lights up across three magical nights in July.
The multi-award-winning Luminous is a mesmerizing visual event featuring impressive lighting displays, illuminated art, live music, roving entertainment, delicious treats, workshops, children’s
activities and more.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said Luminous will feature new installations to excite and entertain people of all ages.

“Explore hidden areas of the Gardens while being surrounded by more than 20,000 LED lights and illuminated art on display as part of the LuminART Awards,” Councillor Burnett said. “New features this year include Luminous Roots: A Symphony of Light and Sound, an illuminated maze, Neon Forest, and Habitat, which is a custom-designed installation with a focus on discovery.”

Luminous can be enjoyed by people of all ages with two different viewing experiences available – free entry on either Friday 12 July or Saturday 13 July, or via an exclusive ticketed evening on Sunday
