Spectacle of Light

Friday 02 Dec - Saturday 31 Dec

This year at Spectacle of Light, the pirates are taking over Fort Douglas! Our after-dark family experience is inspired by Treasure Island. Your little adventurers can run, climb, slide and swashbuckle through Fort Douglas as they search for treasure. The whole family can enjoy interacting with a cast of characters reminiscent of this childhood classic story.

Food & Drink

All that after-dark adventuring can make for hungry pirates! Join the crew to toast marshmallows in our flaming field of fire or refuel at the Fort Douglas cabins. Hot chocolate, mulled wine and tasty treats such as Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Vegetable Curry and Hot Dogs are available ~ we can’t guarantee to prevent scurvy but will certainly keep the pirate crew energy levels up!

Pick up your marshmallow skewers from the Fort Douglas Cabin and The Horsebox!
