Photos from the VIVID Festival of Light

Every year I brave the bitter cold, rainy and windy weather to walk around Sydney Harbour for a couple of hours to check out VIVID festival. It’s easily one of my favourite free gigs that Sydney puts on. It combines the latest in visual technology mixed with creative and interactive technology. Ths year the Opera House was lit up with an Indigenous Australia theme with gorgeous bright colours and awesome art. Here are my favourite pics from the night.

What to do

There is so much to do in Sydney! There’s the harbour, beautiful beaches, cool bars and cafés, free festivals and parks galore!

Check out my Free Things to do in Sydney guide for more.

Where to stay

Cheap: Though there are lost of hostels in Sydney, Base Sydney is the one I’d recommend most as it’s central, clean and functional (check out the kitchen omg!)
Boutique: Ovolo 1888 is 2 minutes to Darling Harbour. Situated in a beautiful old brick building, the art-deco style rooms are very instagrammable. And just to top it off – there are loads of awesome freebies too!

Where to eat and drink

For cheap(ish) eats with harbour views head to Cargo Bar on Darling Harbour. For the best Italian in Sydney, try Jamie’s Italian (yep! Jamie Oliver started this place). And for a good night out, meeting people and drinking cheap booze, head to Side Bar near Central Station.line 4 JPEG
