There are many light projections in Darling Harbour including “Across the Seas” , “The Windspinners”, “Kia-Aura”, “Checkmate”, “Halo” “Sydney Infinity” and so on. With DJs at The Good Line, you can get a glimpse of the superscale installations and projections on the world-famous Light Walk. Also, enjoy a living-breathing discovery playlist curated by the city’s finest selectors and spinners. “Across the Seas” is a 3D mapped projection that will light up the vast roof space of the MAritime Museum, bringing the stories of immigrants from across the globe who travelled dangerously to the city of Sydney.
