Events0 results

Sorry... there are currently no upcoming events.



Step inside a fantastical labyrinth of light and colour.

After their sell-out success in 2015, the Architects of Air return to Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland this April with their newest inflatable sculpture, ARBORIALIS Luminarium

Inspired by the natural world, simulating the wonder and awe of being lost in a forest, ARBORIALIS Luminarium features a kaleidoscope of colour, light and an ethereal soundscape from the Song of Danu by Irish Composer Dr Michael Morris.

This colourful world will delight visitors of all ages and is the perfect place to wander, explore, relax or find an oasis of tranquility in the twists and turns of each tunnel within the luminarium.


Please note as this event has been extremely popular in the past, we recommend you book priority queue tickets when they become available.
