This year, in addition to the regular sites where artists show their beautiful work every year, the organizers have included three new precincts: The Galleries, The Royal Botanic Gardens and Taronga Zoo. An installation inspired by ancient routes across Australia lights the sails of the Opera House and features artwork by six indigenous artists.

Large light projections will cover the facades of several landmarks, including Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Animal-shaped installations, bound to captivate the youngest among visitors, will be installed at Taronga Zoo. The festival will take place until June 18, by which time the organizers expect a record number of visitors.
