From Rundle Street to Rundle Mall, the East End is one of the city’s most-loved and well-travelled strips — but you’ve never seen it like this. The East Precinct of City Lights invites us to look up to the heavens and back to the past. Start the trail at East End Echoes – an eye-catching audiovisual dive into the histories and characters of the city, created by illuminart along with various artists. Soon after you'll find Sky Castle by ENESS — an inflatable, deconstructed rainbow in the heart of Rundle Mall which will transform Adelaide’s retail centre into an interactive dreamscape of colour and light.

More experiences and a downloadable map released this June.

Presented as part of City Lights.

About City Lights

To help you navigate our free program, we've created City Lights: a night-time trail of light featuring over 40 free installations, projections and immersive experiences. City Lights encompasses three individual precincts within the Adelaide CBD: NorthWest and East. Choose one, two or all three precincts to explore.
