I am a freelance writer living in the south of Adelaide. I am a vegetarian, humanitarian, animal activist and bird rescuer. I believe to the very depths of my soul that we are put on this Earth to look after those less able than ourselves.
Governer Lachlan Macquarie is known for some of the most outstanding and extensive contributions to the growth of the state of New South Wales. 2010 celebrates the Bicentenary celebrations of the Governor being sworn in.

To commemorate this event, the Macquarie Visions event will be held as a part of Vivid Sydney.

This event is a free public walk that takes one hour approximately and will be a storytelling journey using iconic Macquarie era buildings and immersive light displays. The walk starts with a dazzling light spectacle at St Mary's Cathedral where the stones of the Cathedral will appear to literally rise out of the ground as the story of "Designing the Nation" unfold. The walk continues through Hyde Park Barracks to Parliament House and ends at the Circular Quay.

This event is going to be held nightly from 6pm to midnight, from 27 May to 20 June. The vibrant sound and light displays will bring to life all that the Macquaries pioneered.
