Aqua Magic, Darling Harbour, Australia

Sydney’s Number One¬†tourist attraction, Darling Harbour, was the prime entertainment venue during the 2000 Olympics. It was also the site for ‘Aqua Magic’, at the time, the world’s only fully floating Water screen and light show spectacular. This show projected to an audience measured in the millions.

Laservision’s technical solution allowed both Water Screens and the two projection barges to rise and fall with the tide and yet, “lockdown” at showtime for perfect alignment using an active mooring system.


Special shows were prepared for the 2000 Sydney Olympics and included digital projection, high powered lasers, lights, audio and fountains.

The Aqua Magic show, ‘Fish Opera’¬†won the prestigious International Laser Display Association award for “Best Graphics”.
