After sell-out showings in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto, the "world's most Instagrammable exhibit" has landed in Sydney.

From the Opera House to the Harbour Bridge and the tree-lined shores of Manly, Sydney knows how to show off its good looks. But despite the abundance of postcard-approved attractions, the city is giving visitors and locals another excuse to brighten up their timelines with the launch of Happy Place in Broadway. Dubbed the 'world’s most Instagrammable exhibit’ it's filled with multi-sensory themed rooms and larger-than-life installations.

The Sydney pop-up is the exhibit's first location outside of North America, after sell-out runs in LA, NYC, Toronto and Vegas. Founder, Jared Paul says he's on a mission to spread happiness around the world and transport people back to childhood. At Happy Place, joy is the "world's largest indoor confetti dome" where 500,000 pieces of swirling confetti rain down on visitors; a 20-foot tall double rainbow; a bathtub filled with rubber ducks; a room scented with the aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, an Upside Down room that defies gravity and 40,000 golden flowers in the Super Bloom Room.

“We founded Happy Place on the simple idea that the world could use a lot more happiness, and after seeing the joy it brought people in America, we knew the experience was something special," said Paul. "Since then, we have made it our mission to inspire more smiles and laughter by providing a momentary escape, but we never dreamed we’d be able to bring a little bit of happiness all the way to Australia."

Outside of the rooms, guests can enjoy the Happy Place lemonade stand, whose proceeds will be donated to the Australian Red Cross (to date, Happy Place has donated over $100,000 to local charities), and enjoy a culinary menu filled with colourful treats like Rainbow grilled cheese toasties and ice lollies.
