It Only Happens Once A Year, And It’s Never Forgotten By Those Lucky Enough To See It.

There is so much to love about Sydney, Australia from its Royal Botanical Gardens, Sydney's Tower and SkyWalk, Darling Harbour to the iconic Sydney Opera House; the city does not disappoint. To further add to its allure, the capital of New South Wales is bright and shiny with its annual Vivid Sydney event that you might say casts the city in a new light.

Described as the world’s largest outdoor ‘art-gallery,’ the event uses light projections and installations on bridges and buildings throughout the city while entertaining its locals and visitors with singers from all areas of the world. The captivating fusion of art and technology brings together talented lighting artists, designers and manufacturers. The best part about this unique event is that it is completely free for the public to enjoy. If you are planning a vacation, you may want to check out this illuminating event.

In its sixth year, the 18-day light festival runs until June 8, 2015.
