Event Details

Vivid Sydney's wildest precinct is back — better, bolder and more beautiful than before.

Step inside a world of scientific discovery and become a light for the wild. Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo is shining a light on conservation and the wonders of wildlife with a spectacular display of light sculptures. Alongside the festival favourites from last year, you'll meet a whole new mob of awe-inspiring animal light sculptures.

Wander through a marine world to meet some of NSW’s most endangered aquatic species and emerge from the mouth of a Port Jackson shark as it splashes through the facade of Taronga’s heritage entrance. Tread quietly through the Sumatran jungle to encounter endangered and ferocious animals along the way before stepping into our Taronga Centenary Theatre to behold a multi award-winning animated film, presented here as a 270-degree cinematic experience. Pause a while and rest beneath a canopy of stars and a glowing planet earth as imagined by children, before a final journey through an illuminated Australian bushscape that takes everyone all the way home again.

As part of Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo, there are also a limited number of American Express Sky Pass tickets each night. Available to everyone to purchase, American Express Sky Pass tickets provide access to the Taronga Zoo Sky Safari at night to view the zoo form above and get a unique perspective of Vivid Sydney.
