Mysterious fog fills the air… a crowd gathers… magic is taking place…
26 May to 17 June
Cockle Bay,
Darling Harbour, 2000

Shows daily from 6pm – 11pm every 30 minutes. Fireworks on Friday and Saturday, 7pm and 8.30pm.


A mysterious fog fills the air above Cockle Bay, and a crowd gathers to see magic take place. Massive lightning strikes rend the sky, while enormous thunderbolts shatter the air. And glowing through all this a massive avatar, a semi-transparent mystical figure materialises, seemingly made of mist…

Magicians of the Mist came together through a passionate collaboration between artists and composers, engineers, a ‘fountaineer’, pyrotechnicians and other leaders in their fields. This extraordinary work straddles the blurred line between art and technology that defines the digital era, celebrating the power of creativity and innovation.

Massive pumps throw tonnes of water skywards every minute. Huge projections shine on towering walls of water. Lasers, fountains, jets of flame, music, fireworks, LEDs, searchlights and fireballs are all remotely controlled by a master fountaineer and laser artist. It has to be seen to be believed!

Artists: Oracle Liquid, The Electric Canvas, and Vivid Sydney
