Event Details


TICKET HOLDERS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY REFUNDED 

It’s with a heavy heart that Taronga announces the cancellation of the 2022 Twilight at Taronga Concert Series.

This decision was not made lightly and takes into account both the safety of our concert guests, staff, artists, crew and broader community, as well as our ability to deliver an experience that meets the expectations of our guests who have purchased tickets.

We are extremely proud of the Twilight at Taronga experience which is renowned for its unique and energetic space. Regrettably, with the current public health measures in place and largely sold out shows that would see guests in close proximity and unable to socially distance, our event space does not comply with the current requirements for a COVID-safe event.

Taronga is a passionate and long-term supporter of the live music industry, with 2022 set to be Twilight at Taronga’s 26th year. As devastating as this is, the health and wellbeing of the whole community remains paramount.

We would like to thank all of the Twilight, and Taronga community, for their support and look forward to coming back with another unforgettable series when the circumstances allow.
  Taronga is a not-for-profit organisation with a vision to secure a shared future for wildlife and people. Events like Twilight at Taronga not only provide revenue to support Taronga’s vital conservation work in Australia and around the world, but also connect guests with wildlife and the pressing challenges they face such as this year’s support of Taronga’s Litter Free Oceans campaign.

Although the series will not be going ahead this year, you can make a donation here. Any donation made today will allow Taronga to continue to support initiatives such as Litter Free Oceans, as well as continue to breed threatened species, carry on vital scientific research and deliver conservation programs here in Australia and across the globe.
 
 Taronga Zoo remains open for day guests to visit, and to connect with and learn more about wildlife.


It’s a pleasure to welcome iconic singer/songwriter and ARIA Hall Of Fame Inductee Darryl Braithwaite to the Twilight at Taronga stage in 2022. 


As the front man and vocalist for 1970’s band Sherbet, Braithwaite rode a wave of local and international success with songs such as ‘Howzat’ and ‘Summer Love’, propelling the band the band to superstar status. 


Braithwaite went on to embark on a highly successful solo career which included a #1 ARIA Album Chart for his album ‘Edge’ (1988) featuring the hit singles As The Days Go By’and ‘One Summer’. Braithwaite’s 1990 follow up album ‘Rise’ included the single The Horses’ which reached #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and to this day remains an anthem for generations of Australians. 


In 2020, Braithwaite joined a host of local and international artists to perform at Fire Fight Australia, Concert For National Bushfire Relief in front of an audience of more than 70,000 at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium. 


When you’ve got a back catalogue like Daryl Braithwaite’s,it’s hard to find new material that will slip easily into an established canon of classic hits, but in 2020 that’s what he did with the release of the single ‘Love Songs’.
