I have been to vivid for the last few years & compared to the last few years was disappointed. We walked on Friday night & it seemed not all lights were on due to the rain? Plus although lights were at certain locations they were...More

Just go, you need to feel the vibe, see the brilliant light displays and boats on the harbour. The Opera house is just stunning

Very poor, not many buildings lit up, went with a friend who had been 2 years before and she raved about it, this year she said and I agree not worth it. Travelled from interstate to see will not go back to see again.

Wow, what a waste of time, money and effort. To the organisers of Vivid, what a disgrace. To Sydney transport, honestly, what on earth is wrong with this city. From the light rail tram ride, so jam packed that you could not hold on, breathe...More

Vivid Sydney is a wonderful exhibition. The lights across the respective venues are stunning, and there is a lot to see. Staying for two nights allowed us to see most of the lights. Our hotel at Darling Harbour had good views of the lights across...More
