  • 13/5/21 – Adelaide Town Hall was scheduled to be lit up on the 12th, but had been rescheduled for the 13th.
  • 11/5/21 – We have been informed that Adelaide Festival Centre’s Walk of Fame strip light is currently out of order so is no longer able to light up. A technician is traveling to fix it but it won’t be back online in time for lighting up on 12th May 2021. We thank them for participating and their support.
  • Sydney Town Hall, NSW, and The Roundhouse cliffs in Fremantle, WA are unable to light up this year. These buildings and landmarks in Hobart, Tasmania, are not available to light up this year: Elizabeth Mall, Kennedy Lane, Railway Roundabout Fountain (Hobart), Franklin Square Fountain. Darwin Convention Centre is unable to commit to awareness lighting at the current time; we thank them for lighting up in 2019, and hope to be able to light up in 2022.


*** Due to there possibly still being some coronavirus and COVID-19 restrictions in place in some locations around Australia, Light Up The Night is again likely to be in a reduced capacity for 2021. ***

Please observe all social distancing or government mandates for your local area or state if visiting any buildings and landmarks to see them illuminated, or to take photos for submission.
