For those staying in Sydney city accommodation during Vivid Sydney, you are in a perfect position to experience all of the bright lights and wonder of this world-famous festival. Here are our tips for making the most of your time in town.
#1. Get to all the festival ‘firsts’
Can’t decide what to see in Sydney during Vivid? There are a number of outstanding new attractions and exhibits at Vivid every year, and 2016 is no different. The Royal Botanic Gardens is a new location for this year, with illuminated trees, interactive art installations and a 60-metre-long cathedral tunnel of twinkling lights. Check out the Game Changers talk series to hear from Spike Jonze and the creators of Orange is the New Black and House
of Cards. And of course, the incredible Taronga Zoo illuminated animal display could be one of the best walks in Sydney you ever take.
#2. Go with a group
Wondering what to do in Sydney with kids during May and June, or ready for a road trip with your closest girlfriends? Vivid is one of those events that’s only made richer by those you share the experience with. Whether you grab a group of close friends or take your entire family along for the ride, we believe the more the merrier (and more vivid!).
#3. Stay close to the centre of it all
You can see so much more of Vivid when you’re staying within walking distance.
