Leave feedback

ILLUMIN8 has evolved out of the very successful Festival of Light and due to demand become a weekend event. This year is also particularly significant as it welcomes home the internationally known Jade Buddha for Universal Peace.

ILLUMIN8 celebrates peace and harmony inspired by Buddha's life, held annually at The Great Stupa. Visitors can walk through the Peace Park and interact with different light installations, travelling from one stage to the next experiencing multicultural performances. Browse market stalls, eat delicious vegetarian & vegan food and features a spectacular animated light and fireworks show. Note; fireworks show on Saturday evening only.

There will also be special Buddhist activities and the consecration of the Jade Buddha happening on Friday 18 May. This is open to the public 9am - 5pm and is available on donation. Most ILLUMIN8 activities do not begin until 12pm Saturday.
