Aall the neon fun from Solstice Searching has been extended and bringing you a new spin-off event this winter, introducing Solstice Search Party.

Join in for an exciting night in the Botanic Gardens, featuring Carla O’Brien’s amazing new neon sculptures, as well as all-new light-themed art installations and activations from some of Warrnambool’s most talented creatives.

Celebrate the longest night of the year by embracing the dark, wintery conditions, rugging up, and venturing into the gardens to shed light on all sorts of hidden treasures. Take a sneak peek into the enchanted realm of the Faerie Grotto, explore the Nurture in Nature Storybook Trail by lantern light and immerse your senses in the Botanical Light and Magic experience by One Day Studios.

You will also be treated to an amazing musical line-up, including Melbourne artist D’Arcy Spiller and local legends Tom Richardson, Flynn Gurry and Willnko. There will also be plenty of your favourite comfort foods and drinks to warm you up.

Don’t forget to bring your torch and be prepared for all the elements. Umbrellas and gumboots are recommended.

This is an all-ages free event. Limited tickets available, covid19 capacity applies.
