Experience Tidal Beacon

‘Tidal Beacon’, a dramatic 60-foot art installation, towers at the harbour’s edge at the top of Rise Again.  Its appearance changes with the tides — meaning each visit offers a new experience.

‘Tidal Beacon’ responds to tides, weather and the surrounding environment. Light rises and falls within the structure, culminating in a 12-minute event at high and low tides.

The event consists of the ‘Lunar Crest,’ an eight-minute crescendo of shimmering lights bookended by a two-minute ‘Beacon Turn,’ which transforms the sculpture into a rotating light. Throughout the event, directional spotlights shine into the sky and across the harbour.
