The grand festival of colours, lights and music is coming back to Sydney and we couldn’t be happier! Vivid Sydney 2021 is a spark of hope for both the artists’ and art-lovers’ communities across the country. Although the times have been unfavourable for us since the onset of the pandemic, let’s hope that the festival that is scheduled to happen from September 17th will be a way to embrace life in all its fullness. With just two months away from the festival, now is the apt time to be reserving the best venues from where you can see the prime views of the lights and installations. Of course, you can visit the Vivid Sydney venues to see the majestic works of art from up-close. But experiencing the festival from the several vantage points in Sydney is truly something beyond what words can express. Some of the most in-demand Vivid vantage points include the famous Vivid cruises, Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, the harbourside restaurants and many more.

A Vivid Sydney cruise is a boisterous option for those who love a good night-time sightseeing and dining experience enhanced by the sparkling views. Australian Cruise Group offers a wide array of Vivid cruises that includes everything to make the night extra special and memorable. We offer four different packages that people can choose based on their interests and budget. All our cruises provide a luxury ambience and a delicious dinner with a view of the harbour attractions. For the same reason, we have been a favourite Vivid Sydney vantage point throughout the past years. You get the opportunity to watch some of the most popular installations including the 3-D light projections at Sydney Opera House.  Get your seats on board one of these cruises for a memorable festival night on Sydney Harbour. You will also find plenty of other options such as dining at the Opera House Kitchen, Climbing the Harbour Bridge, or dining at the famous harbourside restaurants and so on.

Over the three weeks of the Vivid Sydney Festival, most businesses in the city—both big and small—provide exciting offers for the customers. Let’s look at some interesting places to explore during this festival clime. The word on social media, let alone the streets of Sydney, is all about visiting the new restaurants that have come to the city in the recent past. At Sydney CBD, make sure to visit the new Latin American restaurant for a true Central American meal and to indulge in some of the finest drinks including the largest mezcal and tequila collection in Australia. At Potts Point, dine at the latest contemporary restaurant to get a taste of the Egyptian cuisine and a blend of other Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours. There is also a classic French restaurant that will also be worth the visit. The famous Japanese restaurant and the pubs and clubs at Barangaroo, the Italian restaurant at Surry Hills, Darling Harbour and Newtown are some of the places that shouldn’t be missed.

Some other exciting experiences you can take up on your visit to the Vivid Sydney Festival are roaming around the illuminated and decked-up streets, going on a Vivid Sydney Photo Walk, a Guided walking tour and more.

This Vivid Sydney is definitely a great opportunity for us to welcome the ‘new normal’ as we call it. So how about we start making plans for Vivid Sydney 2021 to avoid any last-minute hassles, lest we don’t get the best seats at our favourite vantage point or restaurant. We got your back! Check out the places we have listed above to make this Vivid Sydney memorable as ever!
