Find the best spot
Compared to previous Australia Day Skyworks events, the light show will be positioned closer to the Perth foreshore (Langley Park) and less central over the Swan River. For the best experience, the City of Perth encourages viewing the City of Light Show from Langley Park.
The drone element of the light show has not been designed to be viewed from other locations and therefore the images will be reversed, or viewing may be restricted from areas such as South Perth or Kings Park.
If viewed from areas outside of Langley Park, the audience will be unable to hear the narrated soundtrack or have access to event facilities. The soundtrack will NOT be played on FM – only on speakers at Langley Park.
