Vivid Sydney, Australia’s annual outdoor light festival, will be taking over the city’s Taronga Zoo for the first time this year as part of the zoo’s 100th anniversary celebrations. From May 27 to June 13, visitors will find as many as 10 large illuminated sculptures of critical species from Australia and Indonesia’s island of Sumatra, all of which are selected to highlight Taronga’s commitment to wildlife conservation. From Corroboree Frog to the Asian Elephant, each sculpture will sparkle and feature interactive lighting, sound effects, and moving parts, making visitors’ encounters with them a memorable one.
“They will be among the largest and most technologically advanced lanterns featured in the festival, showcasing the innovation Vivid is known for,” Stuart Ayres, New South Wales minister for trade, tourism, and major event says of the special showcase.
