• GLOW: Bendigo after dark


Every night over the period of 25 June 2022 - 17 July 2022, Bendigo's beautiful Rosalind Park will transform with a series of vibrant installations and light projections that engage and immerse visitors in an unforgettable sensory experience.

The 11 installations are all unique and aim to showcase stories of Bendigo through a radiant display of light, colour and sound in a spectacular fashion. 

At the entrance of GLOW you will find an illuminated Acknowledgement of Country paying respects to the traditional custodians of the land, the Dja Dja Wurrung People. 

Continuing into the park, you will find illuminated representations of all things Bendigo, including our Horticultural heritage, delegation as a UNESCO City and Region of Gastronomy, a nod to our mining history and our cycle friendly city. Visitors will experience walking through almost 600 colourful lanterns, celebrating the cities rich Chinese heritage. 

Using the latest in lighting effects, technology and creativity, GLOW promises to brighten up even the coldest winter night.
