Royal Botanic Gardens Fire Gardens

Published on July 26, 2018

Melbourne is about to be Lit, like never before with

Fire Gardens at the Royal Botanic Gardens!


Stonehenge. The Kremlin. A bridge in Vietnam and a former prison in Morocco. For more than 20 years, French artists Compagnie Carabosse have been putting them all to the torch. Now, these luminary alchemists will transform Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria’s Melbourne Gardens into a dream space of mystery and revelation.

Mammoth spheres of leaping flames, sculptures that flicker and dance, fiery urns that cause shadows to play and a soundtrack every bit as brilliant as the garden itself—making your way through this dense and wondrous garden is both a personal journey full of surprises and a shared experience of elemental forces in full effect.

Fire Gardens will light Melbourne up like never before.

This is a promenade event in an outdoor environment, so wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather and travel light. No animals, chairs or eskies. No BYO. Food and drink stalls will be available on-site.
