Spectacular international hit Fire Gardens is coming to Adelaide Botanic Garden for Illuminate Adelaide 2024 from 4 – 21 July.

After captivating audiences all over the world, Fire Gardens, created by French fire alchemists, Compagnie Carabosse, will transform the Adelaide Botanic Garden into a bewitching night-time wonderland, flickering with the flames of more than 7,000 giant handcrafted fire pots, enchanting candlelit archways, captivating kinetic sculptures and live music performances.

Compagnie Carabosse have created extraordinary installations in public sites all over the world including Kremlin Square in Moscow, England’s eerie Stonehenge, Hue Bridge in Vietnam, Pont du Gard in France and an abandoned
Moroccan prison. The company paints with the palette of fire – its colours, warmth, sound and scent.
