The Enchanted Garden 2023: when and where to get your tickets

Don’t miss the highly anticipated new season of The Enchanted Garden when this outdoor interactive light-show experience returns to Brisbane in November 2023.

The Enchanted Garden, presented by Royal Caribbean, transforms Roma Street Parkland Brisbane into a spellbinding illuminated landscape, inviting park-goers to embark on a fantastical quest within a dazzling new light-show spectacle from 23 November to 20 December 2023.

The return of the popular experience loved by all ages will see visitors spellbound by twinkling lights, intricate holograms, dazzling lasers and night-time projections, plus mesmerising special effects across more than 22,000 sqm of inner-city parklands.

A new interactive tale and map guides visitors through a carefully constructed environmental narrative centred on celebrating nature through connection, play, discovery and storytelling.

The Enchanted Garden Brisbane will see human explorers help a mischievous possum on a journey to locate shards of a shattered crystal heart within the wondrous world of Mystic Island and restore balance and harmony to the natural world.

With hidden delights at every turn, the almost 1km self-guided and wheelchair-accessible trail takes 30 to 40 minutes to complete. However, visitors can also explore at their leisure.
