After a sold out 2021 season, Light Creatures is back to take you behind the gates of Adelaide Zoo after dark!

An evolving celebration of conservation, explore the historic precinct to encounter new up close and immersive experiences from lanterns, to interactive performance and even the newest Light Creature Cahaya - a larger-than-life glowing tiger as it prowls the zoo grounds.

A nocturnal adventure for the whole family and featuring a few appearances from the zoo’s own furry and feathery residents, Light Creatures is back and set to be bigger and even wilder than before.

Artists featured at Light Creatures include A Blanck Canvas, Elizabeth Close, Jack Buckskin, Slingsby and Vans the Omega
