Guest Comments


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 2024, it has blossomed into one of the world’s largest festivals of lights, music, ideas and food - Vivid Sydney! A staple in the New South Wales winter economy, Vivid Sydney awes its audience every year with ethereal light projections, electrifying music concerts, empowering workshops and culinary experiences. Are you ready to see the best of Vivid Lights on a cruise?

The four pillars, Light, Music, Ideas & Food are brought to life by this year's theme - ‘Humanity’. Sydney Harbour is the place to be to experience Vivid Sydney 2024 in all its glory. Vivid Sydney cruises guarantee an edge over other vantage points, by taking you right into the heart of the festivities.

Our selection of Vivid Sydney harbour cruises include – private deck cruises for small groups, unique dining experiences, entertainment cruises with live shows and wallet-friendly Vivid Sydney sightseeing cruises. We have cruises operating daily during the 3-week span of the festival; so plan your night out, book ahead and enjoy the lights from a unique on-water vantage point.

This year, watch the textural animations on the sails of the Opera House, and the dramatic displays of Torres Strait 8 (TS8) climate warriors on the Harbour Bridge pylons. Global Rainbow casts its magical glow on the city with 40km of rainbow laser beams. Our Connected City and Vivid Light on Sydney Harbour unite the light projections across the city's high-rises, Harbour Bridge and a flotilla of yachts, transforming the harbour into a technicolour wonderland! Cruise to see it all and more!

Last year, Australian Cruise Group participated in the Vivid Sydney Local Business Program, lighting up our flagship vessels alongside the city’s landmarks for a coordinated display of Vivid Lights. Stay tuned for updates on our participation in 2024.
