Follow the glow of lights in Central Park

Since its inception five years ago, the annual Glow Winter Arts Festival has ensured that Stonnington's glow up is very real, courtesy of light installations, sprawling projections and loads of after-dark fun. This year, the festival returns for four days in August to illuminate Stonnington's Central Park with specially commissioned immersive light works.

Highlights from the festival include the Laser Garden, which will envelop Malvern's historic Central Park in thick fog and piercing laser beams. Let your imagination go for a deep dive in the environmentally focused kaleidoscopic lightscape Revive the Reef, or in the future-projecting Anthropic Augmentation. Revive the Reef invites visitors to think about Australia's natural environment, particularly the Great Barrier Reef. The Neon Night Garden and Between the Trees are all about getting interactive, so get ready for some colourful, dynamic fun. You can expect a part collaborative musical instrument, part installation, entirely magical world of music and light. And be sure to use the hashtag #glowfest18 when posting your very 'grammable pics.

And that's not everything. Check out the Glow Winter Arts Festival program for the full line-up of new site specific works and installations, or simply get exploring.

The Glow Winter Arts Festival will run from August 16-19, from 6-10pm each night in Central Park, Malvern East.
