Vivid Syd­ney is Aus­tralia’s largest event, so head in early. The lights come to life ev­ery night at 6pm, so make sure you get the most out of your visit by us­ing the Vivid Syd­ney app to plan in ad­vance and sched­ule in your favourite events.

Don’t over­load

It’s im­pos­si­ble to fit every­thing into one night so I sug­gest mul­ti­ple vis­its. You could start in The Rocks, Cir­cu­lar Quay and The Royal Botanic Gar­den and work your way to precincts in­clud­ing Dar­ling Har­bour, Kings Cross, Taronga Zoo, Luna Park and Chatswood.

Know your van­tage points

1 LUNA PARK 2018 marks Luna Park’s first year as a precinct, of­fer­ing a water­side view of the lights, where you can snap a great pic­ture while tak­ing a ride on the fer­ris wheel.

2 ON THE WA­TER Cruises and fer­ries of­fer ex­cep­tional van­tage points. See things from a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive, with the added bonus of less crowds.

3 TARONGA ZOO An­i­mal-themed Vivid in­stal­la­tions and home to one of the best views of Syd­ney Har­bour.
