Top tips for an unforgettable Vivid Sydney

Book a restaurant


It’s going to get busy, so make sure you’ve got your dinner planned ahead of time. Check out the Shop Small map here to see where your Card is accepted.

What better way to end a glorious night among the lights than by looking out at them from your bedroom window? Use the great hotel offers above to find your perfect spot.

Listen as well as look


The lights at Vivid are undoubtedly spectacular, but make sure you take the time to explore the music and ideas on offer as well. Find out more here.
