Vivid Sydney’s wildest precinct is back as Taronga Zoo Sydney is lit up once again for Australia’s most colourful festival!

Last year Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo amazed, delighted and wowed guests young and old with its incredible giant animal light sculptures. Now Lights for the Wild at Taronga Zoo Sydney is back—better, bolder and more beautiful than before.

With a limited allocation of tickets per night, bookings are essential!

A fully interactive and immersive event
For the first time, Lights for the Wild will be a fully interactive and immersive event. Become part of the experience and interact with the light sculptures like never before with a state-of-the-art wristband that lets you become a light for the wild.

Meet a cast of captivating creatures
Come and awe at the giant multimedia light sculptures in the stunning grounds of Taronga Zoo Sydney. Meet the magnificent Sumatran Tiger, the vividly coloured Marine Turtle, a swarm of tiny buzzing bees and a giant Port Jackson Shark that will literally swallow you whole —plus a whole cast of other captivating creatures that will sparkle in the night.
