Birdsong by Skunk Control: Wander down the nature trail and look out for the
beautiful sculptural birds, who have gathered to form a chorus and protect local
species and soothe the community…but listen closely, do they have a warning for us?

Night Parrots by Chalk River Labs – Hypnotic, kaleidoscopic light washes over the
giant night parrots which were until recently thought to be extinct. And think you know
the park’s rocket ship? Well, you have never seen it like this before!

Cosmic Reverie by Teeny Fletcher – Werribee artist Teeny Fletcher takes us on a
journey from dusk to dawn in a beautiful, dreamy glowing light walk.

Nocturnal Neighbourhood by Christie Widarto – As night falls, an animated
nocturnal neighbourhood of animals comes out to play! Look out for endangered
species including the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, the Fat-tailed Dunnart and the
Barking Owl.

LIT Werribee

As well as hosting LIT, Wyndham Park boasts two impressive playgrounds, expansive parkland and views of the Werribee River, all just a hop-skip-jump from the buzzing multicultural eateries of Watton Street.

Make a night of it by enjoying dinner in Werribee City Centre – you’ll find restaurants, bars and
pubs, gelato, takeaway options and family-friendly dining are all just a short walk from Wyndham Park.

If you are planning on having dinner in the Werribee City Centre before experiencing LIT make sure to book as restaurants will be filling up quickly.

LIT Werribee 2024 dates

Following the Opening Weekend from Friday 8 March to Sunday 10 March, Wyndham LIT will be open Wednesday to Sunday until Sunday 24 March, 8pm – 11pm.

For the first time, an additional Sensory Friendly Night on Tuesday 12 March will provide an opportunity for visitors with sensory sensitivities and other needs to experience LIT in a more relaxed environment with reduced lighting and sound intensity.

Want to take your time exploring? Wednesdays and Thursdays are a great option! It’s a very popular event so weekends can be very busy.

The Werribee light show is an all-weather event so it will only be cancelled if weather conditions are deemed unsafe.
