Many people have a light festival or a Sound & Vision show, but Vivid is a unique experience, if only because it turns the iconic Opera House into yet another piece of art!

Talking about lights, Vivid Sydney Is out of this world.. Impressively splendid.. Excellent show.. Nothing comes second to it. Superbly beautiful. Choreography in its finest. No adjective can ever, ever accurately describe it. I always.make it a point to fly in to Sydney every month...More

An amazing event which really puts Sydney on the map. In a city which hasn't had much going for it in recent years, vivid beings the place alive for its duration each year

Vivid Sydney, view from darling harbour. Saturday night, full of peoples who enjoy the colourful lights at night. Dancing water, colourful laser lights all over city of Sydney, so fantastic nights.

I have been dreaming to visit Sydney on vivid, great laser on the opera house and around. Staying around circular quay hotel is the best. Having walk around and back to the hotel room really quick.

What a night. So much to see. Walked from Darling Harbour to the Rocks then Circular Quay and finally around to the Opera house and Botanical Gardens. So many lights and interactive exhibits. This is a must for anyone visiting Sydney in June.

Admittedly it was raining and not a great night for Vivid when we went. One bonus was there was not a lot of people around so we didn't have to deal with huge crowds. Started with a dinner cruise then walked around the city. Having...More
