Lighting up the Murray in Echuca Moama

 

Free ticketed event

Visit Echuca Moama for the inaugural Moama Lights event, lighting up the Murray from 8 – 22 May 2021.

For the first time in Australia, our iconic red gum bushland and most legendary river will be illuminated using never seen before sound and lighting treatments for an original and immersive experience like no other.

Taking place in Moama’s culturally-significant Horseshoe Lagoon, the 600m trail will guide visitors through three defining chapters of Echuca Moama’s story – it’s indigenous heritage, European settlement, and modern day.

Follow the path of up-lit river red gums and theatrical fog rising from below the boardwalks as you are mesmerised by the lightshow of gum leaves slowly drifting across the lagoon.

Venture into thick bushland where you will be engulfed by a canopy of light, captivated by the vast night sky of hundreds of flickering stars lights, and wander through a field of thousands of illuminated native flowers covering the bush floor.

As the treeline begins to part, the majestic Murray River will reveal itself, ablaze with colour in a triumphant finale.

Local indigenous artworks will be illuminated to tell the story of the Yorta Yorta people, and 100 local student artworks have been interlaced into a spectacular lighting piece, depicting what Echuca Moama means to them.

Moama Lights has been produced by renowned production and lighting design company, Mandylights, which delivered the largest ever New Year’s Eve lighting show in Dubai, illuminated the Singapore National Gallery, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Auckland Bridge, and has created installations for Vivid Sydney.

Moama Lights is brought to you by Murray River Council and is proudly funded by the NSW Government Streets as Shared Spaces program. The funding will provide vital economic stimulus to the twin towns of Echuca Moama and wider region, which was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent border closures.
