Explore Darling Harbour’s FREE Glowing Inflated Labyrinth Installation This January

Festivals, Play, Sydney / 6 January 2020

Let your inner child run wild at this pop-up playground of inflatable fun located in the heart of the city.

If you’re looking for an out-of-the-box date idea that won’t cost you a cent, you’ve come to the right place. With the festive season behind us, most of us will be feeling the pinch from weeks of gift-giving, eating out and celebrating the year that was. But, feeling oh-so-broke doesn’t have to stop you from getting out and experiencing the best of our sparkling harbourside city.

As part of the Sydney Festival 2020, Darling Harbour has come alive with a brand-new interactive installation designed to capture your imagination this summer. Taking up residence at Tumbalong Park, Dodecalis Luminarium is the immersive inflated labyrinth created by experimental design firm Architects of Air. Unlike anything you’ve experienced before, this bespoke installation delivers a radiantly lit experience with winding paths and soaring domes designed to inspire.

The team from Architects of Air has used the natural landscape, geometric forms and Islamic and Gothic architecture as inspiration for this epic immersive experience. The designers behind the creation Alan and Meko Parkinson have crafted three awe-inspiring Dodecadomes joined by a web of tunnels, awash in intense, neon-bright natural light.

For punters wanting to experience the labyrinth for themselves, there’s plenty of ways to enjoy this pop-up installation. For those who like to book ahead, you can secure a spot ($20 for priority ticketed entry) to the installation’s half-hour ticketed sessions running from 9am to 7pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Make sure to book early as tickets are strictly limited. For those who’d rather turn up on the day, free access is open from 10am to 6pm Monday to Wednesday and 10am to 5pm Thursday.

Whether you’re looking to surprise that special someone or want to try something new, this pop-up installation is sure to tick all your boxes.
