Enjoy new light installations for 2020! The illuminated trail will take you across the winding river with its pixie lanterns and starbursts reflected in the water. Gaze at the carpet of colour and marvel at the beauty of the Orangerie from the incredible viewing platforms in Fort Douglas.

Enjoy the night-time wonder of Fort Douglas all lit under the stars – where else can you play after-dark? Take an amazing journey up amongst the tree canopy in the magical Sky Maze and explore all the challenges of this fabulous play area. New this year is the addition of the mini-maze for the under 6’s!

Sip mulled wine and hot chocolate as you enjoy this very special place. Toast marshmallows and tuck into scrumptious hot food in Fort Douglas as well as Restoration Yard. Our shop is also open at Restoration Yard for a spot of Christmas shopping while you’re here.
