Summer Hill House lights up young lives

Achieve Australia’s Summer Hill House garden and courtyard came alive last month with interactive lighting displays and sensory activities set in an enchanting ‘mythical rainforest’ theme. 

Inspired by the spectacular light shows of Vivid Sydney, which attracted two million visitors this year, the displays at Summer Hill House included a large glowing mural, garden lights and sculptural displays, an interactive kaleidoscope tunnel, and a scented fog machine. 

During the week, families and participants of Summer Hill House were invited to attend a special glow party to come together and enjoy the light show and entertainment. There was also glow in the dark face painting and glowing accessories to add to the fun on the night.  

“Our families and participants really enjoyed the interactive displays and the chance to experience something different from the everyday,” said Summer Hill House Manager, Naomi Fraser.

“Some families weren’t able to attend Vivid Sydney this year and they loved that we brought a touch of the festivities to them,” said Naomi. “It was also an opportunity for families to socialise with other participants and their families.”

The June light up event at Summer Hill House capped off an exciting few months at the short term accommodation and respite centre, which now hosts an ongoing calendar of activities and events for the people we support. In July, we will be celebrating NAIDOC Week, Pyjama Day and National Tree Day as well as hosting movie nights, craft and science workshops, plus more.
