This year is going to be bigger and brighter than ever, so explore far and wide! Wander around the city and down to the waterfront to admire the red reflections of TMAG and the Grand Chancellor; listen to the pianist at Hadleys Orient Hotel build to a red hot crescendo; stroll a scarlet Salamanca Place and frolic beneath the fairy lights; and meander the streets and alleyways of Battery Point. Jump in the car and go for an adventure: walk the red footbridges of the Tahune AirWalk; take in the serene red glow of Pumphouse Point at Lake St Clair; explore the historic streets of Richmond; and hunt ghosts amongst the red lights of Port Arthur Historic Site.
We won’t leave you out alone in the cold – here’s the full list of businesses who are dressing up in red. Happy snapping!
