Vivid runs from 27 May - 18 June, so get in quick to secure an experience that takes advantage of seeing Sydney up in lights.

From the sky

Vivid BridgeClimb Sydney
Vivid BridgeClimb & boogie

Lionel Richie had us dancing on the ceiling, but the Vivid BridgeClimb has just trumped that with dancing in the sky! Exclusive throughout Vivid Festival, the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge will have an illuminated dance floor. Decked out in a flashing Vivid Climb vest, you’ll climb the Bridge above the spectacular lights below before dancing under the stars. Get a group together or give this experience as a gift for an experience of a lifetime.


Dinner from above

If you’d rather do dinner than anything daring, a nice meal at Sydney Tower Revolving Restaurant for two is the perfect way to experience Vivid in comfort, style and from every angle. Enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet of 40 international dishes at your guaranteed window seat with unlimited beer, wine or soft drink while taking in the amazing view of the bright lights below.


From the sea

Cruise Sydney Harbour

Looking for a romantic idea for date night? See famous Sydney landmarks including the Opera House and Harbour Bridge while taking in the brilliant lights (minus the crowds), with a relaxing cruise. Choose from a variety of cruises including a three course dinner and a cabaret show on an authentic luxury paddle wheeler with wrap around verandas, dinner and dancing to the beat of a live band or a buffet dinner on a luxury catamaran.


From the street

Walking & photographic tour

Take in the lights and sights with a Sydney Photographic Workshop walking tour. Stroll through the streets of Sydney from popular tourist spots to places where the locals hang out. You’ll pick up some landscape and travel photography tips as well as develop your night photography and creative skills to help you capture Vivid Sydney 2016 in all its glory!

Kobe Jones Japanese restaurant Sydney
Dinner from a prime location

If appreciating Vivid from afar rather than being surrounded by crowds of people is more your scene, book a romantic dinner for two at a restaurant in prime Vivid viewing locations around Sydney. There are lots of great dining options located around Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour, Circular Quay and The Rocks. But don't forget to request a window seat to ensure the night is a feast for your stomach and your eyes!
