Get ready for a new breed of outdoor experience!
Follow illuminated paths to discover a magical menagerie of glowing giants in the Electric Kingdom – an award-winning, jaw-dropping extravaganza featuring large-scale, luminescent animals of epic proportions.
Come and be captivated by the colossal creatures roaming, rolling and reacting to the crowds, including the menacing Tiger, the mighty Falcon, the roly-poly Pandas, the towering Giraffes, and Tarutharu the Kaurna Skink. Don’t miss the spectacular Underwater Wonderland, where giant jellies bob above luminous fish and incandescent corals. You might even catch two naughty crabs cheekily scurrying through the crowds…
In an exciting commission for Joondalup Festival, a brand-new creature is set to be unleashed! Created in collaboration with Nimunburr Yawuru Ballardong Noongar artist Kambarni, and Wardandi Bibbulmun Noongar singer songwriter Boox Kid, the Snake-Necked Turtle will make its debut in the Electric Kingdom. Known as Yaakan, Booyi or Choonya in Noongar, this ‘near threatened’ little turtle is endemic to the Joondalup region.
This electrifying one-of-a-kind event is brought to life by A Blanck Canvas, the Melbourne production team whose illuminated artworks have awed audiences at industry-leading events like World Expo, Moomba and White Night.
