Vivid Light Fesitval

The Vivid Light Festival is a new Sydney tradition. It’s become one of the city’s favourite events and it’s a fabulous sight on Sydney Harbour, too. Vivid Sydney, as it is known, is a fascinating artistic and cultural experience. It has found a welcome home in Sydney night life, adding to the city’s exuberant lifestyle and attracting millions of visitors every year.

Every Light Festival is different. Each year, new features and spectacular new lighting for Sydney city and Sydney Harbour are shown. Some of the recent Vivid Sydney shows have lit up the Sydney Opera House with Aboriginal art and turned famous George Street in to a fantastic streetscape of colours and images. There’s a lot to see during this event, particularly from the water. We can take you for a trip around the Vivid Sydney sites in your own private water taxi for a great night on Sydney Harbour. Wine and dine, shop till you drop, and see a fabulous show on the world’s greatest harbour.
