The light is set to shine on the Southern Highlands Botanic Gardens to send out an environmental message and break records.
While everyone will be dimming their lights in honour of Earth Hour the gardens will be lit up on March 30, for the special evening of environmental awareness.
For the second year running, the Southern Highlands Botanical Gardens will light up at night in conjunction with the Wingecarribee Shire Council to promote sustainable energy and living.
As a bonus Highlanders will have the chance to witness the largest solar footprint attempted in a Guinness Book of Records attempt.
Southern Highlands Botanical Gardens chairperson Charlotte Webb (OAM) said the gardens’ committee was looking to the community to achieve the record.
"We’re actually going to do a large footprint and then everyone will stand in the footprint [with their solar lantern],” she said.
“We will set up a drone and photograph the shining footprint and get the Guinness Book of Records to inspect it as well."
In conjunction with world record attempt for the biggest solar footprint, there will also be lantern making for kids between four and 10 years old and market stalls promoting sustainability.
Festivities kick off March 30 at the Southern Highlands Botanic Gardens,1 Old South Road, Bowral, from 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm, with the world record attempt at 7:30 pm.
