Plan Ahead And Enjoy Vivid Sydney 2024 From The Best Vantage Points

As Vivid Sydney approaches, we'd like to share some insights that we believe will be valuable to our dear guests. Based on our years of Vivid Sydney cruise service, we've confirmed that the saying "a little planning goes a long way" holds true.

To ensure a seamless experience of this wonderful global festival, now is the ideal time to begin planning. Pay attention to even the seemingly minor details such as your mode of transportation, attire, essentials to carry, and selecting the best spots to witness the splendour of Vivid Lights.

In this blog, we will guide you in choosing unique vantage points to view Vivid Lights. Without further ado, let's delve right into it!

Cruise Into The Vivid Sydney Magic

While there are many ways to enjoy the festival, nothing comes close to a scenic cruise along Sydney Harbour. Not only has it become an inevitable part of a complete Vivid Sydney experience, these Vivid Sydney cruises also offer the best vantage points. 

From the outer decks of 'Magistic Two,' treat yourself to panoramic views of the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and other waterfront marvels, all aglow with the dazzling Vivid Lights. We offer two Vivid Lights cruises with early and late departures. Choose the one that suits your schedule and witness the festival like never before from the waters! 

Climb The Harbour Bridge

If you want a little bit of adventure added to your Vivid Sydney experience, join the ‘Vivid Sydney Climb’ by ‘Bridge Climb Sydney’, and climb the Harbour Bridge. The view from the summit is truly mesmerising! See Sydney glitter with Vivid Lights. If you time your climb just right, you can even reach the summit in time for the incredible Vivid Sydney ‘lights on’ moment. Imagine seeing the entire city light up from above all at once!

Lady Macquarie's Chair in the Royal Botanic Garden

Like the previous year, the Royal Botanic Garden hosts the mesmerising 'lightscape' event, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in a world of wonders of lights – from enchanting light canopies to towering illuminated flowers. While exploring the garden's attractions, you'll find several vantage points that offer stunning views of other Vivid Lights installations.

One such vantage point, often overlooked in discussions, is the iconic Lady Macquarie's Chair. Perched on the edge of the garden, this historical landmark provides an unparalleled panoramic view of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Despite its lesser-known status, it's worth noting that Lady Macquarie's Chair can still attract crowds, so arriving early is recommended.

Up Above, On A Heli So High

If you wonder how the birds see Vivid Sydney, here’s your chance! Take a ride in a helicopter! As you soar above Sydney's skyline, you'll witness the city transform into a luminous wonderland unlike any other. 

From the iconic Sydney Opera House to the majestic Harbour Bridge, every landmark is lit up in a spectacular display of colour and creativity. A helicopter ride over Vivid Sydney is not just a sightseeing tour – it's an experience that allows you to fully appreciate the scale and grandeur of this extraordinary event. 

So, get ready to streamline your Vivid Sydney experience with ease! Here's a heads-up: book one of the Magistic Vivid Cruises now and enjoy early bird pricing.
