The Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world with the famous Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge making it more magnificent. The VIVID Light  Festival takes place each year in Sydney and the light installations & projections transform the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and buildings into a wonderland. The dates for VIVID 2019 are 24 May to 15 June.  One of the best ways to experience the festival is to take one of our Vivid Cruises.


  • 2.5 hour cruise on the Sydney Harbour
  • Views of VIVID Festival & buildings with projections
  • Sydney Opera House Sails lit up 
  • Harbour Bridge awash with colour
  • Delicious Hot and Cold Buffet
  • Popular DJ Playing Dance Hits


The light show has grown in both creativity and popularity over the past 10 years and the focal point and crowd favourite of the light show are the projections on the iconic Opera House which is bathed in light and images creating a breathtaking sight which is best seen from the vantage point of the harbour waters.

The VIVID light show is run by Destination NSW and NSW Tourism and has become a wonderful platform to promote our beautiful city and give both tourists and Sydney-siders alike a chance to see this City full of history, culture and art in a whole new light.

The dinner cruise runs Daily Monday to Sunday evenings and includes a delicious buffet, a dancefloor and popular Sydney DJ. There is also a bar where you can buy beers, a selection of wines, bubbles and non-alcoholic beverages. The VIVID cruise tour gives you a chance to see the pinnacle of the VIVID light show, the Opera House with its transforming light sails along with a view of the city skyline which will also be part of the VIVID show. The vessel will then cruise the harbour so you can take in many of Sydney’s other iconic sights such as Luna Park and the Sydney Harbour bridge, dropping you safely back to Darling Harbour.

Make dinner in Sydney a special one for loved ones, family or visitors looking for something a little different to experience in Sydney.
