Summer Solstice Light Spectacle

Mark your calendar for December and early January—the only time of year you can witness this dazzling light show, unique in the Southern Hemisphere.

Due to the summer alignment of the sun over the Tropic of Capricorn, a brilliant beam of light penetrates the darkness of Belfry Cave through a 14m vertical shaft. The effect is electrifying! Standing in the beam, you will see the colour of your clothing reflected around the cave. A disco ball makes light dance all around you.

This natural phenomenon is available on our 11am Cathedral Cave Tour from December to early January. Bookings are essential.
