VIVID Sydney is definitely something to put on your bucket list! This was our first time to see this huge outdoor light event and we were very impressed!! We will be back to explore more of the amazing displays another year.
The light displays are in various locations around the city and easily accessible. I do suggest you have a plan before heading out and downloading the Vivid App will assist you with organising your visit. You could easily spend a week in Sydney and see something different every night.
We took the caravan down and set up at Lane Cove Tourist Park. We have stayed here a few times now and it’s a very peaceful spot in the heart of Lane Cove National Park. You certainly don’t feel like you are in the middle of a big city and the kids have plenty of room to run around! The train station is a short 10 minute walk so getting around is easy – and the kids LOVE jumping on a train!!
OUR VIVID EXPERIENCE …AMAZING!!
Our first stop on our Vivid adventure was Chatswood! We were greeted by an octopus that changed colour when you hit the many drums under his tentacles, the kids squashed moving bugs on the gear shift display, we were turned into a human crossword and we were captivated by a huge futuristic projection over the Performing Arts Centre.
As we wandered further around the streets of Chatswood we were mesmerised by a display of more than 9000 LED colour changing lights suspended from a roof top. An ever changing submarine floating on water was another spectacle that had us watching for quite sometime.
On our second night in Sydney we ventured into Circular Quay and boarded a Captain Cook Cruise! This particular cruise had us on the harbour for 1 hour as we floated under the Harbour Bridge and saw the AMAZING Opera House up close! The Opera House was a highlight for all of us – the sails continually changed to different images and it was just spectacular!
If you didn’t make the trip this year, make sure you do in 2018 – you won’t be disappointed!
