Vivid Sydney returns bigger, bolder and brighter in 2017 with a new precinct at Barangaroo, an expanded light walk through the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, and the eternal transformation of the of the sails on the Sydney Opera House. Starting on Friday 26 May and running through to Saturday 17 June, Vivid Sydney will light by the city every night from 6pm to 11pm.
The Ferries will be at the heart of the action, carrying thousands of locals and visitors and being one of the centrepiece attractions of the festival. This year, we have teamed up again with Taronga Zoo to bring you 8 giant illuminated animals on the sides of our First Fleet Ferries.
