Featuring seven light precincts and more than 90 large scale light installations and projections, Vivid Sydney will run bigger, bolder, and brighter until 17 June.

More than 180 local and international artists have created the light installations and projections for Vivid Sydney. Projections will illuminate iconic buildings and landmarks throughout the city including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia as well as the organic backdrops of enormous trees and natural rockscapes in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

Sydney Opera House

The ultimate canvas, the Sails of the Sydney Opera House features Audio Creatures, an indescribable world of colour and light, featuring imaginary sea creatures lurking deep in the harbour and shimmering plant life.

Special effects and animations are found at every turn, from the ground below visitors’ feet at Barangaroo (South), to Darling Harbour’s Magicians of the Mist, a 50 metre high water fountain featuring 40 metre high projections, lasers, fireworks, flame and a dramatic soundtrack.

Now in it’s ninth year, Vivid Sydney is the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas. You can visit the lights until Saturday 17 June. For more information visit www.vividsydney.com
