VIVID spreads from Darling Harbour to the Quay to the Rocks and beyond. While much of the light show is the "same" there are a,ways surprises around the corner, or across the street. A night well spent, and the kids in the crowd always add joy and awe to the experience

This attraction gets better every year, There is so much to see and hear the atmosphere when we went was great. There are lots of bars around to rest pick one that overlooks the Opera house and just watch and take it all in. magic.

This festival returns to Sydney every year. A lot of international performers come to the SOH for a one or more nights act, while outside there is a stunning projection on it. The light are on every evening from 6pm for about 3 weeks, and the lighting art is visible all along Circular Quay and Walsh Bay, and this year for the first time in Darling Harbour. Great opportunity for some nice pictures :)

This year's Vivid festival was spectacular, from the images on the Opera House to the newly added lighting on the Harbour Bridge. The already beautiful harbour area was on a whole new level. We loved wandering through the installations along the harbour. The interactive/musical displays were my favorites and packed with kids and adults alike eager to ride the light up see-saw and see their drummed light patterns. Simply incredible and definitely worth braving the cold to venture into the city for a look. (sidenote: in my opinion, the festival this year was far and away better than last year's- more colorful, more fun- but keep in mind it changes each year).
