Vivid Sydney is an annual outdoor lighting festival with immersive light installations and projections. The festival showcases cultural performances from local and international musicians as well as a cultivated forum to exchange ideas featuring public talks and debates from leading creative thinkers.
Let’s share a local secret! The Manly Ferry is an outstanding way to view the spectacular lighting festival. As you enter Circular Quay, prepare to be amazed by the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge as you will be passing in between them both!
