Eureka Portal is a giant luminous gateway, mesmerising to view, with a magical, captivating appearance that creates a constellation of colours and mood.

A sculptural light installation constructed out of hundreds of recycled plastic milk bottles, it’s both a landmark where people will wander throughout the night and a reflective piece that illuminates the spirit of Eureka, evoking the heady days of the gold rush and symbolism of the Southern Cross.

The Eureka Portal glows in the night as hundreds of brightly coloured LEDs light up its columns, while the centrepiece contains a bright blue field with five pointed stars.
