Llankelly Place is lit up at night by a simple but elegant suspended lighting feature, consisting of 11 medallions with LED lighting in 4 colours.
Llankelly Place is a modest but bustling laneway connecting Orwell St and Darlinghurst Rd in Kings Cross. Lit by this series of large, brightly-coloured starbursts, inspired by the nearby El Alamein Memorial Fountain, this busy lane has become a much-loved Kings Cross landmark.

The lights and the decorative pavements beneath, both designed by architect Peter McGregor, transformed the dark, narrow passage into a welcoming pedestrian walkway.

The lights are arranged in a spectrum of colours, from red at the entrance to Darlinghurst Rd, through orange and yellow, to green where the laneway meets the small oasis of the Springfield Gardens at Orwell Rd.

In 2013, the lights underwent a major restoration, which was undertaken by AG Public Art. The 11 giant coloured ‘medallions’ were restored with new weatherproof light fittings and energy-efficient LED bulbs, new catenary cables, wiring and lighting control systems.
