Bruce Munro: Tropical Light – Local Businesses Develop New Tours

Local Darwin businesses have developed new Tropical Light tours ready for Bruce Munro’s first city-wide exhibition which starts on 1 November 2019 and runs until 30 April 2020.

Darwin cruise company Sea Darwin is on board with ‘Tropical Light: Unplugged Twilight Cruise’, a sunset/twilight cruise between November 2019 to March 2020, offering views of Bruce Munro’s ‘Water Towers’ installation at the Darwin Waterfront.

Char Restaurant Darwin will offer an indulgent dining experience with a luxury limousine pick up, a spectacular Darwin sunset, dinner at Char Restaurant paired with matched wines and an exclusive Bruce Munro: Tropical Light tour.

Crocosaurus Cove will offer a special twilight experience featuring performers from the Burning Circus, plus famous reptiles of the Top End.

Walk Darwin also has a new ‘Tropical Light Artscapes’ walking tour, taking in four of the Tropical Light installations while exploring street art throughout CBD laneways.

Northern Territory Major Events Company Chief Commercial Officer Toni Cutler said specialist mentoring advice is available to local businesses to help with developing tailored tours and packages.

“I would encourage businesses to get in touch and see how they can get the most out of the expected influx of visitors over this period,” she said.

It is anticipated that the new tours will increase visitation and enhance the viewer experience of Tropical Light, allowing locals and tourists to view the exhibition in a variety of different ways.

Members of the public are encouraged to register online for updates on the 2.5km arts trail, information on how to access the audio guide and the eight illuminated sculptures via www.tropicallight.com.au.
