Light up the Night Australia

Each year in the weeks and months leading up to May, organisations, volunteers, and patients right around Australia contact buildings and landmarks asking if they will again light up blue for International ME/CFS Awareness Day. We will share photos here as they become available as well as via our email updates and on our Facebook page.

2017

In 2017, the following Australian buildings and landmarks are scheduled to be illuminated for May12th awareness (some buildings do not light up on the 12th due to availability, so be sure to carefully check the dates).

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that we have not confirmed all of these details with the building/landmark owners themselves, unless otherwise stated. Information is submitted to us by individuals and organisations who have organised Light up the Night themselves. We will update this page as soon as we are aware of an error or change, but you may wish to subscribe to our e-bulletins (link coming soon) where we will keep you updated as well as follow us on Facebook.

Did you take photos in 2016?

We love receiving photos each year from those who visited a building or landmark on the dates it was illuminated blue for May12th awareness. If you have photos to contribute from 2016, please email them to photos@may12th.org.au (be sure to let us know they are from 2016).

Looking for international buildings?

Our website May12th.org.au is focused on awareness, events, and Light up the Night happening locally in Australia.

You can view international buildings that lit up by heading to the May12th.org website (external link). Our team thanks the international team and website for all of their efforts in helping to bring together an international May12th campaign.

If you are located in another country and took photos of a blue building or landmark for May12th awareness and would like to contribute it to our website and project, then please email it to photos@may12th.org.au, as we would love to display a few to showcase the international campaign.
