What is NOX?

NOX, Latin for night, is a night sculpture walk around the Randwick Environment Park. Experience the natural environment like never before as artists from UNSW Art & Design transform the park and wetland into an illuminated outdoor art gallery. For three nights only artworks will be installed around the park to form a leisurely 1.5km loop walk, starting and ending at the Randwick Community Centre.

All artworks on the journey will be powered and lit by renewable energy sources.

Find out more about our new addition – NOX Night Cinema.

Once again we will have a diverse selection of mouth watering food trucks including Algae Fine Food (organic Vegan), Barbicrew (Brazilian BBQ), Big Dave’s Chipper Van,  Hut dog, Vege4Love (Malaysian Vegetarian), WaffloWholly Schnit, and coffee by Grind N Press Coffee Crew.

We are proud to announce that Archie Rose Distilling Co. will be bring their award-winning spirits to NOX this year, along with an offering of wine and beer.

Gelato Messina will be pulling up in their famous retro gelato van serving up a range of highly delicious flavours. All their gelato is made from scratch, using their own recipes and the best ingredients they can get their hands on.  Not only do they make, bake and create all of the additions like cookies, brownies, coulis, jams and meringues in their in-house bakery in Rosebery, but they’ve gone one step further by growing their own strawberries and hazelnuts, and even have their own dairy farm in country Victoria, providing them with super creamy jersey milk.

Frequently asked questions

In order to make your NOX experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible, here you'll find answers to some frequently asked questions about the night sculpture walk.

Is NOX a ticketed event?

You do not need a ticket to attend NOX - all you need to do is turn up! You will need to sign in using the Service NSW Covid-Safe Check in, or by providing your contact details manually.

Is the event wheelchair and pram accessible?

The NOX Night Sculpture Walk is an easy 1.5km loop walk with no stairs. The majority of the walk is relatively flat and situated on wide paved footpaths, enabling easy access for wheelchair and pram users.

However, a short part of the walk (approximately 50m) is unpaved, narrow and located alongside bushland. It is possible for a small pram/wheelchair to navigate this section of the walk which however there are no artworks located along this stretch so we recommend you instead join the path near the corner of Joongah and Cooper Streets.

Larger wheelchairs and prams are recommended to join the path at the corner of Joongah and Cooper Streets.

Event staff will be on site every night to assist with accessibility and safety.

Will there be parking?

Free Car parking is available for visitors near the main entry, accessible via Munda Street. Follow the signage!
