Arboria at Fed Square

  • 10th – 28th January
  • Fed Square
  • 10am-8pm daily
  • Last admission 8pm

Are you ready to enter a labyrinth filled with radiant colours and wonder?

Step into Arboria – an exhibit composed of inflatable structures designed to generate a sense of awe and enchantment.


Arboria is part of a series called Luminaria by Alan Parkinson and the Nottingham, UK based company, Architects of Air.

When you enter Arboria, you will be stepping foot into a massive walk-in sculpture. Enter illuminated tree-like structures, surrounded by sights and sounds inspired by an Ecuadorian Cloud Forest.

And when you get to the centre of the exhibit, you will be greeted by a 10-metre high grand dome.

Arboria will be making its Melbourne stop only in Fed Square from 10th to the 28th January.

If you’re keen to be bewildered by a kaleidoscope of colours and structures, make sure you grab your tickets ASAP! Don’t forget to share your best pics on social media with the hashtag #FedSquareSummer.
