There’s A Giant Inflatable Labyrinth At Fed Square This Month

By James Shackell

If you enjoyed Dark Mofo’s terrifying hall of mirrors thing, you’re probably gonna want to check this out. For the next couple of weeks, Fed Square is playing host to Arboria—a giant blow-up labyrinth of winding tunnels and soaring domes. No running with scissors, please. 

Arboria is technically an interactive sculpture, designed by Alan Parkinson from the internationally acclaimed Architects of Air (UK). It’s one of a series of Luminaria (giant inflatable sculpture things) which have been touring the world since 1992.

This particular Luminarium is inspired by the colours and sounds of the forest. There are glowing tree-like structures, leaf patterns on the walls, and a looping soundscape, recorded in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest. At the centre you’ll find a 10m dome, modelled on the cathedral of York Minster in the UK.

Adult tickets will set you back $18, with kids tickets going for $15. Tots under three get in free. You can grab tix online or at the ACMI ticket desk in Fed Square. Hurry though, after 28 January it’s gone for good.
