The Enchanted Night Garden 2019
7 September 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Saturday, repeating until 21 September 2019
Leave the “concrete jungle” for a real jungle experience right in the heart of Lane Cove.
Don Murchison’s Jungle Chalet Watergarden Artscape adventure includes sculptured streams, ponds, waterfalls, along with colourful lights, laser and fog effects and atmospherics. This is the 19th annual Jungle Chalet event. Be fascinated by “hygromorphomatics” ~ the term Don uses to describe the artistic harvesting of rainwater, to create artificial streams, ponds & waterfalls, with real sound dynamics of moving water. Bring the family to discover the Sculptured Rainforest Walk, the Spouting Elephant, Gorilla in the Mist sculpture, voice tube, artificial snow, nature inspired lighting and more.
When you book for a 5.30 pm, 6.30 pm, 7.30 pm, or 8.30 pm time slot, it does not mean you need to arrive exactly at this time. Soon afterwards is OK. The spreading of starting times is to reduce the influx of visitors at any one time, thereby making the experience more enjoyable for everyone and to avoid overcrowding. The event closes at 9.30 pm.
Please wear suitable footwear for a rustic rainforest environment [no high heels as there are lots of uneven sandstone steps!] A small torch is recommended, especially for those with poor eyesight, as lighting will be subdued and atmospheric. Young children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
