Klickikki - 2016 Edition

June saw the Klick Sydney team enjoy their 6th annual reward trip to Hawaii, where we enjoyed a perfect blend of work and play.

After adjusting to island time with our fiends at the new Four Seasons Ko Olina, we hiked and swam (and drove) our way down to Waikiki for an action-packed few days with our other ohana at The Modern Honolulu.

Before leaving we hosted our second Klick Konnect, this time taking over the infamous Hawaii Theatre to tackle The Business of Influene - as reported by Mumbrella.


Lighting Up Australia

Until the end of March, 2017, a global phenomenon known as The Field of Light art installation will be at ‘home’ in the place that inspired it - Uluru.

Internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro has set-up more than 50,000 slender stems, crowned with frosted-glass spheres, to bloom as darkness falls over Australia’s spiritual heartland.

The installation, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku by the local community means ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara.

Munro recalls “I wanted to create an illuminated field of stems that, like the dormant seed in a dry desert, would burst into bloom at dusk with gentle rhythms of light under a blazing blanket of stars”.

For more information on ways to see The Field of Light or Uluru, visit Voyages Indigenous Tourism.

Eastland's Garden of Beauties

Over the past two months, the Klick team has made Melbourne their second home with several major launches for partner Eastland.

In May, we helped this urban destination unveil 80 new retailers, including an amazing new designer space - The Arcade.

On June 22, we were lucky enough to work with the very talented floral artist, Rebecca Louise Law, to reveal The Canopy - an art installation of 150,000 preserved flowers hanging from the ceiling within The Beauty Garden.
