Vivid Sydney 2020

26 May - 28 May 2020

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 beautiful Darling Harbour, we will be right amongst the colour!

We will escape the crowds one night and enjoy the views of the lit-up city sights from the water on a dinner cruise. We’ll be cruising aboard Vivid Sydney vessel MV Sydney 2000, our dinner package 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 Taronga 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 a dazzling and moving animal projection show. Together, we’ll 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. We’ll get to meet the zoo’s magnificent Sumatran tiger and her new gorgeous tiger cubs, the vividly coloured marine turtle, a swarm of tiny buzzing bees and larger-than-life gorilla family – plus a whole cast of other captivating creatures that will sparkle in the night.

With so many accessible features, Vivid can be enjoyed by everyone! While the lights are out during the day we will enjoy the activities on offer in the harbour including Luna Park, fish and chips on Manly beach & a tour of Sydney Harbour.

Our holiday package includes 2 nights twin share accommodation, all main meals, all activities as per itinerary, staffing support and expenses (at required level).

Day 1

Meeting at our Darling Harbour accommodation, we will introduce everyone to the group and check in. We will head out to enjoy the shops and have some lunch together. The afternoon will find us enjoying a cruise around Sydney Harbour, visiting some of the most iconic Harbour precincts and enjoying a day on the water! Later we will get ready for our Vivid dinner cruise and night in the city. After dinner and enjoying the festival, we will make our way back to our accommodation. Need to rest up for a big day tomorrow!


Day 2

After enjoying a buffet breakfast at our accommodation, we will then get ready for our day out. Today we will be jumping on (you guessed it!) another ferry and going to Luna Park. Sydney’s heritage listed amusement park has been entertaining families for many years with classic rides and endless entertainment, we can spend the day on the roller coaster, dodgems and in sideshow alley. Later we will make our way back to our accommodation to rest our feet and have some down time. In the evening we will have an early dinner at the harbour before jumping on the ferry to the zoo for “Lights of the Wild”!  After a full day of action, lights and adventure, we will head back to the hotel for a well-earned rest.


Day 3

After filling our tummies at our final buffet breakfast at our accommodation, we will pack up our things and check out of our hotel. Before leaving the city, we’ll jump on one last ferry ride to Manly for a relaxing day by the beach. Fish and chips for lunch, dipping our feet in the water and an ice-cream, before we get the ferry back to Darling Harbour to meet our family and friends and say goodbye to Sydney and it’s beautiful harbour – until next time.
