One of the highlights of this year’s program is the ChronoHarp, a brand-new creation by Amigo & Amigo, inviting participants to craft beautiful tunes using light and colour. Meanwhile, the Trumpet Flowers installation offers a chance for guests to contribute to musical melodies under the glow of towering blossoms.

Nature enthusiasts can meander along the enchanting nature trail and encounter the Birdsong exhibit by Skunk Control, where sculptural birds form a chorus, imparting a sense of tranquillity and perhaps a subtle message for humanity.

Other captivating installations include Bloom by The Indirect Object, where visitors can recline amidst soft pink inflatable gumnuts and flowers, and Ursula Lassos The Moon by Studio Vertigo, a mesmerising creation from UK artists, presenting a swirling, ethereal moon captured by a rope lasso.

Local talent also takes the spotlight, with Werribee artist Teeny Fletcher’s Cosmic Reverie guiding attendees on a dreamy journey from dusk to dawn, and Christie Widarto’s Nocturnal Neighbourhood bringing animated nocturnal creatures to life as night falls.

For those looking to extend their evening adventure, Werribee City Centre offers a plethora of dining options, ranging from restaurants and bars to gelato parlours and family-friendly eateries, all within walking distance from Wyndham Park on Watton Street.

Conveniently located near free public parking and Werribee Train Station, Wyndham Park provides easy access for visitors eager to experience the magic of LIT firsthand.
