While Sydney's Olympic Stadium is best known as the home ground of world-class sport and entertainment, it is also a beacon of light and hope, glowing brightly in support of major community awareness campaigns.

Stadium Australia lights up for different events and causes several times a month, becoming a regular feature of precinct night-time landscape.

Partnering with Sydney Olympic Park to raise awareness for national advocacy campaigns, recently the Stadium and Precinct has been lit:

  • Blue for World Autism Awareness on 2 April
  • Green for World Earth Day on 22 April
  • Red for Anzac Day on 25 April
  • Rainbow for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia on 17 May
  • Orange for SES Volunteers on 18 May
  • Red & Yellow for Reconciliation Week from 27 May - 3 June 

And will be lighting:

  • Light Blue for World Refugee Day on 20 June
  • Red & Yellow for NAIDOC Week from 4 July
  • Pink for DonateLife Week on 25 July
  • And Purple for the Paralympics in late August

As a proud supporter of community events and charitable causes, the Stadium Australia and Olympic Park lighting program will continue to shine brightly throughout the back end of 2021 and beyond.
