The route for the Vivid Sydney Light Walk stretches for more than three kilometres. The light walk includes major projections and installations at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Customs House and through out The Rocks.

The best way to enjoy all of wonderful sights along the Vivid Sydney Light Walk is to follow the walking route seen in the video below. 

The light walk will take you on a mesmerising journey, below is sneak peak at what you can look forward to seeing.

The southern pylon of Sydney Harbour Bridge features Eora: Broken Spear, a projection curated by Rhoda Roberts AO with work from the Art Gallery of NSW, the Australian Museum and the State Library of NSW.

Customs House becomes an aquatic wonderland in Under the Harbour by Spinifex Group.

32 Hundred Lighting’s dancing beams of light and ‘sparkle points’ turn the Sydney Harbour Bridge and skyline into a jewel to outshine any regal tiara with City Sparkle.

Pixar Animation Studios partners with Vivid Sydney to transform Sydney’s iconic Argyle Cut in The Rocks with a creative light projection that will delight visitors of all ages as they are transported through a visual feast of behind-the-scenes artwork and the evolution of iconic animation. Who knows, Woody and Buzz Lightyear might even make an appearance!

Nature, childhood reveries, musical magic and retro-futures are major themes that emerge in 2019.

Let It SnowNostalgia Above, River of Light and Dancing Grass all conjure the elements.

Firefly Field mesmerises with an aerial ballet of tiny winged creatures while the birds come home to roost in Regal Peacock and Watch Your Chips.

Habit/At, Ocean Sentinels, Torrent, Consumable and Rayuela encourage us to reflect on the environment and how our impact affects the future.

Tap into the wonders of the cosmos and collective consciousness with The Light Teleportal, Empyrean, KA3323, Celestial Pancake and Specularity.

Kids and kids-at-heart will kindle memories with the Infinity Room, Bubble Magician, the slime-fest of Goo! at Cadmans Cottage and the exquisite Ballerina silhouetted against the shimmering harbour and skyline.

Budding musos can play The Harp of the City, Torus, Jungle Boogie, FlipFlop and dance to the rhythms of light and sound.

After taking in the city brightness, step into an enchanted forest. Weave your way through the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney for close encounters with illuminated artworks that reflect and refract both light and nature.

As you marvel at the works, take a moment to admire the artistry and innovation involved in creating each one. Now, imagine what your own future light sculpture might be. That combination of awe, appreciation and inspiration makes Vivid Light a truly enlightening experience.
