Circular Quay

Circular Quay, Sydney NSW 2000

The route for the Light Walk stretches for more than 2kms from The Rocks to the Sydney Opera House and through the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney. Vivid Sydney includes major projections and installations at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Customs House and the ASN Co. heritage building in The Rocks.


The installations on the western side of Circular Quay include two spectacular works that take you far above the earth and into the cosmos. Projected onto the Southern Pylon of the Sydney Harbour Bridge (and best seen from across the water at East Circular Quay) is EORA – Dark Emu, a story told through Bangarra Dance Theatre’s unique physical language. EORA - Dark Emu explores the legend of the Spirit Emu, who left the earth thousands of years ago to reside in the Milky Way.


Geometric forms attract big crowds at Vivid Sydney as artists turn them from static objects to 3D canvases or decorative light patterns that dance, twirl, link up and turn upside down.

From its location in East Circular Quay, Visible Dynamics delivers its take on a child’s stacking toy by connecting different geometric shapes, which light up and spin, inciting childlike wonder; meanwhile Fragmented is an illuminated steel cube that creates an infinite variety of coloured patterns as it gently spins before the crowd. Nearby, the hollow cube of The Space Arena combines latest LED and 3D technology to create a new type ofpublic performance and exhibition space.
