The Gift of Sight

The Fred Hollows Foundation brings you this spellbinding experience that’s a must for all to see. Armed with a special UV flashlight, you’ll be invited to discover incredible artworks created with invisible UV ink. This unique journey into the darkness will leave you with an amazing new appreciation for sight in The Fred Hollows Foundation’s 25th anniversary year.


Magicians of the Mist is the result of a passionate collaboration between artists, composers, engineers, fountaineer, pyrotechnicians and other leaders in their field to celebrate the power of creativity and innovation. This extraordinary work blurs the line between art and technology defining the digital era: 12 massive pumps throw 28 tonnes of water into the air every minute; huge projections shine on walls of water 60 metres wide and 40 metres high. Lasers, fountains, jets of flame, music, fireworks, fireballs, LEDs and searchlights are all controlled through a computer interface in the hands of a master fountaineer and laser artist. See what else is happening in Darling Harbour
