Parrtjima - A Festival in Light

Parrtjima – A Festival in Light invites you to experience the oldest continuous culture on earth like never before.

Step into a spectacular world of light and sound where contemporary and traditional Indigenous stories and artwork are brought to life under the night sky on an unprecedented scale.

Illuminating 2 kilometres of the epic 300-million-year-old MacDonnell Ranges and spilling into Alice Springs Desert Park, Parrtjima is a breathtaking outdoor gallery experience presenting local artwork, culture and stories, with interactive installations the whole family can enjoy.

The sheer scale of the lighting on the MacDonnell Ranges makes Parrtjima Australia’s longest-ever light show installation.

Parrtjima - A Festival in Light is a FREE event, supported by the Northern Territory Government.
