Badu Gili – meaning ‘water light’ in the language of the traditional owners of Bennelong Point, the Gadigal people – is a free daily experience that explores First Nations stories in a spectacular six-minute projection on the Sydney Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sails.

Watch the sails illuminate hourly from sunset* with Badu Gili: Wonder Women, a new projection celebrating the work and stories of six female First Nations artists, created in collaboration between the Sydney Opera House and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, to mark the Gallery’s 150th anniversary.
