About this experience 

Experience awesome light installations on an evening cruise around Sydney Harbour during the Vivid Sydney festival of light and music.

The annual festival sees some of Sydney Harbour’s most iconic buildings spectacularly lit up with installations created by top international artists. See the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge in a whole new light (pardon the pun) as they’re transformed into huge canvases for epic light shows and eye-popping 3D projections.

On board, there’s a bar serving snacks and refreshments available for purchase, and the whole experience is soundtracked by the official Vivid Sydney playlist.

Epic light show – the cruise sails around Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Barangaroo, providing spectacular views of the illuminated Sydney skyline.

Attractions galore – you’ll see Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House like never before; there will be a huge number of light attractions around the city in 2024.

Multiple departure times – catch the cruise from Circular Quay at whichever time suits you best.
