Family-friendly White Night Reimagined Melbourne

Melbourne’s winter nights will come to life with the new-look White Night Reimagined Melbourne, running from 22–24 August 2019This year’s White Night Reimagined looks a little different from previous years, it’s been moved from Summer to Winter and now runs over three consecutive nights. Last year’s event attracted over 700,000 people in one night, so I think the changes will be welcomed by families around Melbourne.

This years program will include spectacular projections, art installations and large-scale live performances with music. Families can enjoy White Night Reimagined in three key locations around Melbourne – Carlton Gardens, Treasury Gardens, and Birrarung Marr. Each garden will be transformed into its own realm as artists from across Melbourne and the globe will take visitors on journeys mythological, mysterious and mesmerising.

There will also be some of Melbourne’s favourite cultural Institutions joining in on the fun – National Gallery of Victoria, State Library Victoria, Arts Centre Melbourne, Melbourne Museum and the Royal Exhibition Building.

White Night Reimagined Service Hubs will be set up at all three key locations. Be sure to check the White Night Reimagined website for more information on events over the three days. There will be some road closures during White Night Reimagined, so it’s best to catch public transport on the night.

We try our best to provide accurate information on kid-friendly events around Victoria, but we do recommend that parents check details directly with the event website.
