HALO Life Below Water


HALO - Life Below Water will illuminate Townsville through a series of sound and light art installations throughout Queens Gardens and Castle Hill. The sound and light festival will come to life with interactive light and sound displays, large scale art installations and include sessions where Townsville locals will share their stories, entitled Northern Stories.

This FREE community event will run nightly from 6:30pm in Queens Gardens from 15 – 26 January 2021. This event will build on the success of the inaugural event and is designed to allow for more interaction and engagement from attendees.

Daily program:

  • 6:30pm - Gates open
  • 7pm – Northern Stories sessions
  • 7:40pm – First HALO show (HALO will run every twenty minutes from 7.40pm)
  • 10pm – Last HALO show (gates will close once attendees for the final show have entered the gardens).

Designed to interweave entertainment and education with the overarching message of preserving and protecting life below water, HALO presents a unique opportunity to deliver something incredible and impactful for our community.

This project will run in conjunction with Northern Stories and will be delivered in partnership with AGB Events.
