Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Step into a spectacular world of light and sound where contemporary and traditional Indigenous stories and artwork are brought to life under the night sky on an unprecedented scale.

Illuminating the epic 300-million-year-old MacDonnell Ranges and spilling into Alice Springs Desert Park, Parrtjima will be a breathtaking outdoor gallery experience presenting local artwork, culture and stories, with interactive installations the whole family can enjoy.
