The amazing success of the botanical gardens

Nearly two weeks after opening night, RADIANCE continues to captivate the Rockhampton community, transforming the Botanic Gardens into an enchanting Christmas display.

Since its debut on 1 December, RADIANCE has welcomed nearly 15,000 attendees through the show, transforming Rockhampton Botanic Gardens into a hive of festive activity and becoming a favorite event for families looking for a magical Christmas experience.

The Christmas-themed LUNA Light Journey, featuring holograms, lasers, interactive projections, light sculptures and immersive soundscapes, has enchanted visitors of all ages and is open until Christmas Eve.

Rockhampton Regional Council Mayor Tony Williams expressed his delight at the overwhelming response from the community.

“RADIANCE has truly become an event for the whole family. The Botanical Gardens come alive every night with the magic of Christmas!” Mayor Williams said.

“RADIANCE has also provided a fantastic opportunity for the Botanic Gardens tea rooms and local pop-up food vendors to trade each evening, offering attendees a range of food and drinks.”

Shannon Brooks, CEO of LASERVISION, shared the excitement at the launch of the first Christmas-themed LUNA Light Journey in Rockhampton.

“The positive energy and joy from the Rockhampton community has been incredible. RADIANCE follows in the footsteps of our popular productions, and we are honored to contribute to the festive spirit in regional Queensland,” Mr Brooks said.

Advance Rockhampton Tourism and Events Director, Zak Garvin, emphasized the popularity of the event.

“RADIANCE attracts large crowds every night and we encourage residents to secure their tickets quickly for an unforgettable experience before Christmas Eve,” Mr Garvin said.

“The Botanic Gardens have been transformed into a magical world, and the response has been overwhelming. We can’t wait to welcome RADIANCE back next year.”

To meet high demand, RADIANCE is offering extended hours on Friday and Saturday from 7pm to 11:30pm, and Sunday to Thursday from 7pm to 10:3pm. Tickets are available to purchase on the RADIANCE website at
