Be mesmerised by this huge northern lights installation in spa country.
Melbourne isn’t the only place turning up the heat this winter. While a laundry list of A-plus festivals, exhibitions and events have made the icy onslaught a bit more bearable in the CBD, some just-as-exciting things are happening beyond city limits in Victoria’s regional hubs. Like Borealis on the Lake.
Thanks to Switzerland-based artist Dan Archer, you no longer need to travel across the world to see the northern lights. Well, sort of.
From July 15, a mesmerising light installation will drop a version of the natural phenomenon – aurora borealis – in Victorian spa country: Daylesford.
Laser beams and theatrical auroras will be projected over Lake Daylesford, while a gentle soundtrack will encourage full immersion into the fleeting experience.
Rug up and settle in next to the lake for a captivating night of light and sound, alongside a stacked line-up of food and drink vendors.
