Arleye (Emu) – Children’s Play Area – Desert Park

A fun, colourful and interactive game of discovery for children (and adults) of all ages, at Arleye illuminated round discs form the shape of a giant emu footprint eight metres in diameter. Jump from one disc to another and activate different colours while the installation imparts scientific knowledge about the traditional uses of the emu for food and medicinal practices.

Lighting of Todd Mall

Come and enjoy the festival ambience complete with a kaleidoscope of lights painting the mall in the evening.
