Lightscape has made its Perth debut, transforming Kings Park into a winter wonderland of spectacular light.

The Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority expects more than 150,000 visitors will experience the breathtaking 1.8 kilometre interactive trail of light, colour and sound before Lightscape ends on 30 July.

The display involves local and international artists and features more than 430,000 lights with illuminated tree canopies, larger-than-life flowers as well as a magical glowing tunnel.

The trail through Kings Park and Botanic Garden takes 90 minutes to complete.

In a statement, the Authority said Lightscape had captivated millions in cities around the world and had been showcased in Melbourne and Sydney.

“In addition to the global favourites, Kings Park has collaborated with First Nations artists to create stunning art pieces seen nowhere else in the world,” the statement said.

“Unique installations also shine a light on seeds of native flora and the importance of conserving the environment for future generations.”

Minister for the Environment, Reece Whitby said Lightscape showcased Perth and all it had to offer.

“Not only will the City of Light shine bright, the event highlights the importance of conservation and culture, while boosting tourism and supporting our local economy,” Mr Whitby said.

Lightscape runs for six weeks from Wednesdays to Sundays until 30 July. Ticket prices start from $36 or $120 for a family pass.
