BOREALIS on the Lake takes place in Daylesford – an Australia destination synonymous with an escape and a place to relax from the daily grind of the city.

Like its surroundings, BOREALIS on the Lake is an experience that will put visitors at ease for a few minutes by focusing on an engaging experience far from the stress of the hustle and bustle of the city.

Created by Swiss-based artist Dan Acher, BOREALIS on the Lake was founded as a result of his desire to create a space where strangers come together and connect beyond their differences.

In addition, he hopes that this Borealis light experience can foster a sense of belonging and community in a society that has been forced to be isolated for years.

If you thought you’d never see a Northern Lights Aurora in Australia, Borealis on the Lake will help you tick it off your bucket list without even leaving the country! Combining technology and art, BOREALIS on the Lake provides an artistic rendering of unique auroras over Daylesford Lake.

During your visit, BOREALIS on the Lake will give off a surreal feeling thanks to the different colors, movement, density of light rays and changing weather conditions. This leads to a mesmerizing one-of-a-kind display every night.

To take this experience to the next level, the show will also include an auditory experience as the rays of light dance to the rhythm of the beautifully composed soundtrack by French composer Guillaume Desbois.

The music has an ethereal feel to match the auroras and is layered, created using synthesizers and traditional instruments.
