One of the best things about darkness falling earlier in winter is that it signals the imminent arrival of Vivid Sydney. This is one of the greatest light festivals in the world (at least, we think so) with installations and projections turning winter nights into something beautiful.
Make the trip to Sydney this year to take in the biggest, best and most dazzling displays. Here are four incredible shows to look out for.
Lighting of the Sails: Audio Creatures
The Sydney Opera House will be turned into a moving tableau of eerie sea creatures, bird plumage and plant life, all pulsing to a haunting sound track. This event will give you a look at one of Sydney's most iconic attractions as you have never seen it before.
You can catch the show from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. everyday between May 26 and June 17.
The magic of this light display takes place at The Concourse in Chatswood. Light, sound and special effects combine at the reflection pool to bring to life an underwater steampunk world. Peering into the water to see this creation is sure to be a dazzling and otherworldly experience.
The display will be on from 5.30 p.m. to 10.30 p.m. between May 26 and June 17.
Gulliver's Swift Travel Service
Rediscover 'Gulliver's Travels' through four floating doorways that celebrate the 350th anniversary of the birth of author Jonathan Swift. Viewers can look through each door to see displays that bring to life the themes of human nature and existence explored in Swift's work. The interactive experience is playful, whimsical and visually stunning in equal measure, and is sure to delight literary fans.
You can catch this display at The Rocks, between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. from May 26 to June 17.
Colourblast Full Moon Party
A multi-visual extravaganza packed with interactive performances, all-star DJs and UV installations, this is a party like no other. Colourblast brings the brilliant lights of Vivid Sydney to the nightclub scene for a night you'll never forget.
The event takes place on June 8 from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. at Darling Harbour.
