Harbour Garden

8 – 20 June 2021


Be enchanted by an explosion of colour in Darling Harbour

A spectacularly vibrant giant inflatable installation will descend on the Australian National Maritime Museum this June to celebrate the Sydney Solstice.

Colourful and immersive, Harbour Garden will delight and surprise, as you view the art work up close, or from afar. 

Inspired by Sydney’s amazing harbour sea life and the stunning waterfront location of the museum, this unique installation is created by two of Sydney’s most dynamic art studios – Studio A and Goldberg Aberline Studio.

This free outdoor installation gives viewers the opportunity to participate in an immersive experience like no other.

Be sure to visit the Maritime Museum to enjoy the rich and vibrant colours of this spectacular installation.

Harbour Garden is part of Sydney Solstice, an action-packed festival celebrating food and drink, art, entertainment and culture.
