Awaken – Bendigo Brought to Light

Festivals and Celebrations

26 Jun 2021 to 17 Jul 2021 Once Only Event

Every night over the period of 26 June 2021 – 17 July 2021, Bendigo’s beautiful Rosalind Park will transform with a series of vibrant installations that engage and immerse visitors in an unforgettable sensory experience.

Each installation captures Bendigo’s stories of the city and its rich history, through a radiant display of light, colour and sound in a spectacular fashion.

Journey through Rosalind Park, starting at the Rosalind Park Piazza where you will be captivated by the illuminated Acknowledgement of Country, a beacon of light that represents 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, Chinese heritage, vibrant art history, famous tulips, and even a ‘River of Gold’.

At each 14 key light shows, you will be invited to read about the magnificent light displays and the story behind how they relate to Bendigo.

Awaken is a free event open for the public to enjoy. Awaken it is operating under a COVID-Safe Plan. Please ensure when attending the event you are following all COVID-Safe Signage and guidelines in place.

Full program will be released soon.
