Roving Entertainment

Be amused and entertained by talented musicians, quirky roving entertainers and circus acts, who will bring the park to life each night. Giant lady bugs, flame twirlers and many many more…

Exclusive Experiences

For the crème de la crème of NightFest experiences, a ticket to the Premium experience is a must have. Ferry transfer, red carpet entry, exclusive entertainment, drinks, and canapés in the premium lounge and staff so attentive you simply have to hold your glass up to receive a re-fill.

Alternatively arrive in style with a ticket to the Posh Pit aboard the official NightFest ferry. Enjoy canapés and drinks as you coast across the lake, to your exclusive, queue- less entry into NightFest. Once you’ve had your fill of NightFest’s illuminated wonderland, take advantage of the return Ferry transfer back to your car.

The Marketplace

To indulge your inner foodie (and food critic), we’ve created the Marketplace; a food, wine and beer bazaar hosted in the The Kitchen Company Tasting Plate, during NightFest. Explore the food and beverage crafts of Bentspoke Brewery, Pialligo estate, Mount Majura vineyard and more, in a melting pot of top local and regional talent.

The Parlour

Full of laughs at NightFest, the Parlour offers the spotlight to one funny act after another.  Internationally revered and an Aussie favourite, Jimeoin’s stand up will have you LOL’ing and ROFL’ing all night long. Not to mention side splitting acts from  Becky Lucas, Nick Cody, Tom Walker, Michael Hing and the Stevenson Brothers.
