A new sound and light experience designed specifically for Townsville.

HALO will illuminate Townsville through a series of light art installations and a light show in Queens Gardens and Castle Hill and will run in conjunction with the North Australian Festival of Arts and Strand Ephemera.

Castle Hill, the natural ‘halo’ that hovers above Townsville, will come to life in a mesmerising experience of light and sound.

Townsville City Council commissioned AGB Events, the creators of the Vivid Sydney Light Walk, to create and produce this new experience for Townsville. Like other light experiences that AGB Events have designed around the world, HALO is established as a new canvas for captivating the imagination of the public.
