Vivid Sydney 2016 is one of the most anticipated events of the year. It is an iconic festival that focuses on light, music, art, creative ideas and unique views and draws over 1 million visitors to Sydney throughout the duration of the festival.

Beginning on May 27 in over 10 different locations, the city of Sydney will be alive with vibrant coloured lights, stunning sculptures and breathtaking music, all of which are sure to get you thinking.

This year the festival is also bringing in something very special. Vivid Sydney 2016 is supporting the McGrath Foundation and will feature the McGrath Foundation Mosaic – a first of its kind. This breathtaking mosaic reflects the many faces and stories of those touched by breast cancer, and will give all citizens a chance to show their support.

You are welcomed to indulge in the contemporary indigenous art that will be lighting the sails of the Opera House, along with the Underwater Forest that can be seen beneath the iconic wharves in Walsh Bay and the Laser-Dragon Water-Theatre that will appear in Darling Harbour and numerous other breathtaking displays as you cruise Sydney Harbour at night from May 27 – June 18.

Witnessing the stunning Vivid Sydney attractions is definitely one of the best things to do in Sydney at this time of year. In 2015, the Vivid Sydney Festival brought close to 1.7 million visitors to the iconic Australian City, and organisers are expecting 2016 to be bigger and better than ever.

One of the city’s favourite ways to enjoy the lights of Vivid Sydney is a cruise on Sydney Harbour. A cruise on Sydney Harbour will take you right in to the mix and leave no displays on the shoreline unseen as you cruise past Darling Harbour, Luna park and Walsh Bay making your way under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and towards Circular Quay and the Sydney Opera House.

Enjoying a Vivid cruise on one of our large entertaining vessels is the perfect way to introduce your guests to our marvellous city, thank your clients for their business or simply to spend time with your colleagues for a mid-year get together. Step aboard and enjoy a range of canapés served to you along with an open bar of beer, wine, sparkling wine and soft drinks as you and your guests, clients and friends take in the vibrant and unique setting of our iconic Vivid Sydney Festival. Our experienced and accommodating staff aboard our vessels will ensure that you and your guests are well cared for on the night of your charter.

Afterwards, you can disembark in the city to continue the mesmerising route that Vivid Sydney has arranged for all festival attendees.
