In response to the Australian government’s restrictions on public gatherings, they regret to advise that the spectacular nightly Badu Gili sails projections have been cancelled until further notice. Bow and Arrow’s Badu Gili Live performance will also no longer proceed.

Badu Gili – meaning ‘water light’ in the language of the traditional owners of Bennelong Point, the Gadigal people – is a new daily experience that will explore ancient First Nations stories in a spectacular seven-minute projection, illuminating the Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sail year-round at sunset.

A celebration of the rich history and contemporary vibrancy of Australia’s First Nations culture, Badu Gili continues the traditions of Bennelong Point, formerly known as Tubowgule, which has been a meeting place for the local Gadigal people for thousands of years.

Badu Gili has been enabled by the Opera House, its Idealist donors and the Australia Council for the Arts.
