Canberra Nara Candle Festival

Enjoy the spectacular visual of 3,000 shimmering candles at the annual Canberra Nara Candle Festival, as we celebrate the Sister City relationship shared between Canberra and Nara, Japan.

Visitors will be mesmerised by the sounds of Japanese music and enchanting lighting that highlights the features of the beautiful Peace Park. The festival brings together a wide variety of Japanese and Australian culture, with arts and crafts such as calligraphy, lantern making, and origami.

A wide range of authentic Japanese cuisine will be available, offering new taste sensations to fuel you through the night.
