Brisbane City Council's creative lighting projects aim to activate the city, bring people together to celebrate our enviable lifestyle, support small businesses and create a strong local economy.

Lighting and projection outcomes can support events, create a unique identity for Brisbane and introduce elements of surprise and discovery enhancing the city experience for residents and visitors.

Find out about the lighting up of other Council assets including the Story Bridge and Brisbane City Hall.
