Moama Lights - Lighting Up the Murray All Month Long!

Moama Lights, the spectacular regional Murray River light show, is now open - every weekend until Sunday, July 28, visitors can embark on an immersive journey reflecting this year’s theme, ‘Enchanted Nights: A Celebration of Light’.

Set against the stunning backdrop of Moama’s Horseshoe Lagoon, Moama Lights showcases stories from across the region through state-of-the-art installations, projections and cutting-edge moving light technology.

Inspired by Banjo Paterson's evocative poem, ‘The Daylight is Dying’, the dazzling light displays have been designed and produced by the world-class design studio MandyLights. As the sun sets, guests are transported to a vibrant, illuminated world that captures the essence of the night-time ecosystem and the natural elements that come to life after dusk.

This year's event highlights the mysteries of the bushland with features like illuminated ripples dancing on the water’s surface and projections of children’s artworks spread across the lagoon. Spectacular Indigenous artworks by First Nations artist Warrick Keen and the brilliant contemporary Yorta Yorta artist Alkina Edwards also light up the region.
