Enjoy the spectacular Vivid Sydney vistas with a delicious dinner
Marvel at the stunning Vivid sights while cruising across the spectacular and well-lit Sydney Harbour.

When Vivid Sydney kicks off winter, the city, in the blink of an eye, gets brighter and better! Unlike other cities, winter in Sydney is not too harsh and is actually quite pleasant, meaning one can easily explore the technicoloured festival of lights, music and ideas. This massive-scale cultural extravaganza is making its highly anticipated return in 2022, boasting a star-studded lineup, with more than 200 events and spanning across 23 days! Like a moth to a flame, the festival attracts more than a million visitors each year, so it is imperative to know the best vantage point to witness all the festivities! Cue Sydney Vivid Cruise!

Unrivalled Views

As far as views are concerned, Sydney Harbour really catches the eye and it only gets better for Vivid. Following the longest Light Walk in history will lead you to some splendid views of the festival and there are also numerous restaurants, pubs and bars that reside more or less in the midst of all the action, creating a phenomenal show for you. But the one that always stands a cut above the rest when it comes to offering prime views of the festival is the popular Sydney Harbour Dinner Cruises. A reveller’s dream vantage, these spectacular cruises will traverse across the harbour waterways, offering you close-up views of the Lighting of the Sails of the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the precincts of Barangaroo, Quay, The Rocks, Luna Park and more! It is also the ideal option for a fun-family night out, soaking in all the harbour fiestas while feasting on a freshly prepared dinner menu. Read along to learn more!
