Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Explore a magical, all-ages sound and light playground at the District Docklands

The District Docklands gets a glow-up with Imaginaria –  a magical "future play experience". In layman's terms, Melbourne, its a giant, glowing, otherworldy all-ages playground to explore.

Imaginaria allows (let's be honest, event-starved) Melburnians to explore fantastic custom-built, interactive structures like a giant inflatable bubble, glowing light maze, and a "cosmic abyss". The whole installation features bespoke sound, light and even scents that are activated as guests explore the dreamscape.

The experience comes from the imagination of Australian creative Nick Ennis, who has brought it to life thanks to a team of architects, musicians, fashion designers, light projectionists, audio-visual artists, sculptors, stuntmen and circus performers. Ennis says: "We wanted to create a play experience that elevated you out of the digital fog and snapped you into the now."

Of course, all of us have to remain vigilant about transmission even as we open up and events get the green light. The Imaginaria team are implementing a number of measures like controlled capacity, staggered entry, mandatory masks, hand sanitation stations, daily deep cleans and temperature checks to ensure guests have a safe (as well as fun) experience. 

Imaginaria has been extended right through to May 23 at the District Docklands (find it beneath the Melbourne Star). Tickets start at $24.
