Slivers of light flicker through a bamboo forest, moving and swaying to the soundscape. Architectural tunnels lead you through mirrored fields and roaring fires, to an ice rink lit by a giant moon.
Nature has taken over the entire Sidney Myer Music Bowl, transforming its iconic amphitheatre into a supernatural forest of ice, art, sound and moonlight.
Enter through a bamboo forest and encounter mirrored illusions, architectural tunnels of light, large-scale sculpture, video art and the return of a beloved tradition—ice-skating on the bowl’s stage.
From devouring cult snacks by the fire at our collaborative kitchens and fine dining in The Lighthouse, to moving in and through artworks, or ice skating beneath Luke Jerram’s giant Museum of the Moon, The Wilds is a one-way ticket to elemental experiences. Rug up and get lost.
Note: Ice-skating sessions are currently at capacity
