White Night Melbourne 2017


White Night, Melbourne’s all-night arts party is on again and the State Library will be lighting up, inside and out. Enjoy enchanting, fantastical projections across the Library façade then head inside to immerse yourself in Seadragon’s lair, an epic 360° underwater adventure set against the backdrop of the State Library’s majestic domed La Trobe Reading Room.

Seadragon's lair
See the dome’s ornate heritage architecture disappear beneath a wall of water to reveal the spectacular seascapes of Port Phillip Bay. World-class animation, soundscapes and underwater cinematography collide to create a living canvas in Melbourne’s own marine metropolis. Visit gardens fashioned from sponges that explode in a kaleidoscope of colour and swaying canopies of kelp where elusive seadragons hide, chaotic walls of schooling fish, jewel-like but deadly nudibranch, armies of giant spider crabs and other evolutionary marvels.
