In 2009, Sydney hosted a smart light festival to promote the creative industries and showcase the city as a global hub for innovation and technology. Fast forward to 2023, it’s now blossomed into one of the world’s largest festivals of lights, music, and ideas - Vivid Sydney!
A staple of New South Wales’ winter economy, Vivid Sydney awes its audience every year with ethereal light sculptures and projections, electrifying music concerts, and empowering workshops. This year, the festival announced a new addition to its core - Food.
During the phenomenal three weeks of the festival, Sydney Harbour is the place to be. Over tens of thousands of revellers, from far and near, flock to various vantage points to experience the festival in all its glory. A Vivid Sydney cruise guarantees an edge over other options, by taking you right into the heart of the festivities. This year, we have listed an array of cruise experiences, each unique in its own way, and curated specifically to suit all budgets and interests.
Our Vivid cruises have graced the harbour for over 10 years now, and have evolved tremendously to complement the festival, bringing you the best sightseeing experience, minus the crowds! We have cruises operating daily during the 3-week span of the festival; so plan your night out, book ahead and enjoy the festival from a unique on-water vantage point.
Our cruise experiences include – private deck cruises for small groups, dinner cruises offering unique dining experiences, entertainment cruises with live shows and performances, premium cruises ideal for those looking for luxury options, and wallet-friendly Vivid sightseeing cruises.
Australian Cruise Group is now an official participant in the Vivid Sydney 2023 Local Business Program. Our flagship vessels will light up in unison with the city’s high-rise buildings and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, creating a colourful and coordinated display of Vivid Lights.
Constantly evolving since its inception in 2009, Vivid Sydney has successfully established itself today as the second hottest event on Sydney Harbour. Split into Vivid Light, Vivid Music and Vivid Ideas, this festival of creativity saw 2.33 million visitors just last year. Vivid Light take the spotlight every year and people crowd the streets of Sydney trying to catch a glimpse of the marvelous installations.
