Vivid is the largest festival of lights and ideas in the Southern Hemisphere and Trusted Travel want to give you the opportunity to experience this amazing event.
Staying on the water’s edge of the beautiful Darling Harbour, we will be right amongst the colour!

Cruising aboard Vivid Sydney vessel MV Sydney 2000, including contemporary Australian dining with a choice of mains and desserts. This 1½ hour cruise is a popular with those eager to see the lights of Vivid Sydney turn on in the evening at 6.00pm. After dinner we can set off and explore the interactive displays.
On our second evening of the light festival we’ll jump on the ferry over to the zoo. “Lights of the Wild” held at the zoo as part of the festival is something not to be missed! The journey begins at Taronga’s heritage-listed main entrance—brought to life with our dazzling and moving animal projection show. Walk through the gates and explore the illuminated trail that winds through the stunning grounds of Taronga Zoo Sydney, showcasing awe-inspiring giant multimedia light sculptures: meet the magnificent Sumatran Tiger and her new gorgeous tiger cubs, the vividly coloured Marine Turtle, a swarm of tiny buzzing bees and our larger-than-life gorilla family – plus a whole cast of other captivating creatures that will sparkle in the night.
