Coined Moama Lights, this three-week celebration of art, light and all things Moama will see the Murray River come to life in a dazzling, glowing wonderland in the form of an immersive sound and light trail.
Starting at the underside of the Echuca Moama bridge, every night from May 8-22 the 600-metre long lit-up trail will highlight the natural beauty through Horseshoe Lagoon before finishing at the Murray River.
While it will be a spectacle to see in itself, the event will explore three different chapters of Echuca Moama’s story – its Indigenous heritage, subsequent European colonisation and finally, modern-day Echuca Moama – with light installations and projections including theatrical fog, strobe and cutting edge moving light technology.
Set to the backdrop of a beautiful bush setting, prepared to be truly mesmerised by a field of illuminated native flowers, an ever-changing display of spectacular colours, twinkling stars, floating leaves and local art across the Murray River.
The event is free to attend but you will need to register for a timed ticket via the website.
