If you're planning your visit to Vivid Sydney please catch public transport and avoid the traffic delays. Alternatively, arrive early ahead of Lights On to avoid the congestion as car parks will reach capacity through the evenings.



Road closures and extensive parking restrictions will be in effect each night in The Rocks, Circular Quay, Walsh Bay, and the Sydney CBD throughout the 23-day event.   

Roads will start closing from 5pm and will reopen by 1am. If you must drive, be aware of the key road closure times as vehicles are not allowed to drive along or exit driveways onto closed roads and will have to wait until roads have been safely reopened.  

More details on road closures can be found here.



Strict parking restrictions will be in effect and roads will be closed around Circular Quay and The Rocks making access to parking around the event footprint very limited.   

Special event clearway parking restrictions will be in effect on various roads in the Sydney CBD each day of the event from 3pm until midnight. These clearways are strict no-parking zones for all vehicle types, and apply even for local residents or Mobility Scheme permit holders. Check signs carefully when parking as vehicles left in clearways will be towed and a fee applies. If your vehicle is towed, it will be relocated to the nearest available parking space, call the Traffic Information Line on 132 701 to speak to an operator and find its location. 

More details on special event clearway locations will be available closer to the event.
