Canberra's Enlighten projections and surrounding NSW

The side panel of one of the Enlighten information pillars between the Questacon building and the National Library of Australia. The top of the sign reads “Enlighten – Culture and Creativity Illuminate The Capital”. The panel below is titled “The Electric Garden” and begins “Autumnal landscapes and childhood dreams breathe life into Canberra after dark as Enlighten returns in March.” Lights colour the path red and purple and the trees are illuminated an autumnal golden brown. Blurred images of people hover over the coloured path.

“Criminally overlooked Canberra packs a big punch …  [with] opportunities to connect with nature or indulge in a range of gastronomic delights, along with a smorgasbord of cultural, artistic and sporting events, Canberra should be on everybody’s 2018 travel wish list,” Chris Zeiher, Lonely Planet
