This December, RADIANCE illuminates the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens, Friday 1 December – Sunday 24 December. Presented by LASERVISION, RADIANCE is an immersive, Christmas-themed LUNA Light Journey.

Rockhampton Regional Council Mayor Tony Williams said RADIANCE is an event the whole family can enjoy as the Botanic Gardens awaken nightly with a spectacular Christmas-themed sound and light experience.

“RADIANCE is a ticketed community event which uses holograms, lasers, interactive projections, light sculptures, immersive soundscapes, and many other sensory mediums to metamorphose the Botanic Gardens. RADIANCE redefines the natural landscape and unveils mystical creatures along the way.”

LASERVISION’s CEO, Shannon Brooks said they are thrilled to be able to debut their first Christmas-themed LUNA Light Journey in Rocky.

“RADIANCE is one of many LUNA Light Journeys we’ve produced recently to mass acclaim and sold-out shows in cities across Australia. It’s an honour to work closely with Rockhampton Regional Council, using the serene canvas of the Botanic Gardens to hold this event. The team can’t wait to see a smile on the faces of the young and old as they walk through the gate,” said Mr Brooks. 

Advance Rockhampton Tourism and Events Manager, Zac Garven said Council is proud to bring the production company behind the #1 attraction at Cairns Festival – ‘Reef Lights’ and the perennially sold-out ‘The Enchanted Garden’ at Brisbane’s Roma Street Parklands, for the Rockhampton community to enjoy.

“RADIANCE is expected to draw thousands of attendees each night to the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens and we encourage residents to invite their family and friends to act quickly and reserve your tickets to an ever-popular weekend session or to secure your preferred midweek night. Tickets are on-sale now via the RADIANCE website at www.radiancerockhampton.com.au,” Mr Garven said.

“To promote the wide range of Christmas events across our region, Explore Rockhampton have developed an online hub for all things Christmas at www.explorerockhampton.com.au/Christmas. ”

“The online hub will allow easy navigation for everything happening this festive season across our Region, including a self-guided tour of Christmas Lights, the Mayor’s Carols by Candlelight events, the Heritage Village Christmas Markets and your community Christmas Carol events; Rockhampton is definitely looking very festive this year,”
