The End of Vivid!


Venture out of Manly this weekend for the closing weekend of the fabulous light stylings of Vivid Sydney.

Take the ferry from Manly Wharf straight to Circular Quay and enjoy the lights, music and food there is to offer. Witness famous Australians icons such as the Harbour Bridge and Opera Bridge transform into beautiful art installations and spectacles of light! Talk a walk through the Light Arc in the Botanical Gardens and capture your picture perfect moments.

After your walk in the light, head to George St for a not-so-secret food truck festival! Check out Twilight Dining at The Burrows, located at 200 George Street, where you can sample the best bites of the world.


Wash down the tastes of the world at the Four Seasons’ Grain Bar where you can find a pop-up champagne bar! Take in the stunning harbour views and salute our dear friend Dom Pérignon.

If you’re wanting to check out some of the worlds best new films, the Sydney Film Festival is also ending this weekend!
