Shine Dome lights up as ACT hits 95 per cent

The Shine Dome illuminated in ‘COVID-19 vaccine’ aqua blue, the colour of the ACT’s vaccine program.

The Shine Dome, home of the Australian Academy of Science, joined many other Canberra icons with aqua-blue lighting in November.

The light show was part of an ACT Health celebration of reaching 95 per cent of Canberrans over the age of 12 being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Other locations that were lit up in aqua-blue – the colour of the ACT’s vaccine program – include the National Museum of Australia, the Telstra Tower and the Captain Cook Memorial Jet.

About the dome

The iconic Shine Dome was purpose-built for the Australian Academy of Science to celebrate and support science in Australia.

It was the first building in Canberra to be placed on the National Heritage Listings for its historical and architectural significance.

The Shine Dome is also a venue space, available for hiring by small and large groups for private, corporate and public functions.
