Introducing GLOW at Sydney Zoo

For three weeks, GLOW at Sydney Zoo will be ablaze with thousands of twinkling lights, over 50 luminous light sculptures and activations, incredible interactive installations and a Secret UV Safari that will lead kids through a trail of hidden neon animals and artwork (kids get a FREE UV pen torch and map to discover the hidden trail and crack the secret code word!). Explore the GLOW Light Walk then step inside Australia's largest Reptile & Nocturnal house and come face to face with hundreds of creepy crawlies, including the world's most venomous snakes and real glowing UV scorpions.

Get the exclusive opportunity to explore Sydney Zoo after dark while experiencing a roaring good time with loads of festival fun for the whole family, including a GLOW Ice Rink, the KIIS Eye Ferris wheel, Glowy Golf by Carnival Cruise Line and so much more.

To top it off, GLOW at Sydney Zoo will donate $1 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for every child who dances at the GLOW Shadow Play activation. Every dollar helps provide valuable care for families while their child receives life-saving treatment.

Glide across the magical 200m2 ice rink adorned with twinkling lights, putt your stuff at Glowy Golf and reach dizzying heights at lightning-fast speeds on The Space Jam and Kinetic Swings. Spectacular performers will be roaming through the festival to entertain you in striking illuminated costumes.
