Everything you need to know about Fremantle Biennale WATERLICHT – a magical large-scale light show.

Make sure you make your way to Fremantle, Esplanade Park from November 1st to November 3rd to witness Fremantle Biennale WATERLICHT a magical light show.

Experience a larger-than-life; cascading waves of blue light soaring into the middle of Fremantle’s Esplanade Park – simulating a virtual flood and calling attention to rising water levels along Fremantle’s shoreline.

The work will also embrace the unique physical features of the site while acknowledging its past.

The event is made all the more special as this will mark the first time WATERLICHT has come south of the equator and will be a headline act for Fremantle Biennale running in November.

Here are some helpful tips to ensure you have the best WATERLICHT experience.

Phone check, headphones check

The number one tip is for people to bring their phones + a set of headphones if they’re coming to see WATERLICHT.


There is a great podcast accompanying WATERLICHT that will make the epic blue waves soaring over Esplanade Park even more special.

Leave the car at home

Best to leave the car and come by train. It’s a 5-minute walk from the station to Esplanade Park.

There’s a free CAT bus from the train station, if you want to get a ride to the Cappuccino Strip for something to eat or a drink beforehand.
