Two sensational nights left of Vivid Sydney 2017
With just two nights left to visit the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas, Vivid Sydney offers some top tips to help visitors check out the lights, the sights and the delicious food offerings.
Destination NSW CEO and Executive Producer of Vivid Sydney, Sandra Chipchase said “With good weather predicted for the next two nights, now is the time for visitors to venture out to experience Vivid Sydney before it closes on 17 June.”
“Sydney really does come to life during Vivid Sydney, with the city showcasing its community spirit as festival-goers come together to celebrate the city and the spectacle. Vivid Sydney is way too big to be experienced in just one night.”
Spend the last two nights with the lights:
Vivid Light Walk
Start Vivid Sydney with a spectacular stroll along the dazzling light walk. There are 65 spectacular illuminations and 3D building projections winding along the city waterfront and into the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Major projections and interactive installations include the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) and Cadmans Cottage.
