Vivid Sydney 2023 at Barangaroo is bigger than ever. Vivid House is relocated to Barangaroo instead of Darling Harbour like last year. The Vivid Fire kitchen & bar is also at Barangaroo. Barangaroo is definitely a must stop for your Vivid light walk 2023.

Vivid House & Vivid Fire kitchen

Vivid house showcases an immersive 360° experience through four awe-inspiring artworks.

Ama is a 7-minute meditative journey across Sydney’s hidden coves, where land and ocean meet. Ama is a psychedelic dreamscape, where familiar sites transform Vivid House into an uncanny, enchanting world. 

Australian Oceans is a journey through a decade of Craig’s adventures capturing seals, turtles, dolphins and even Migaloo, the legendary albino Humpback whale. Surrounding us with four walls of awe-inspiring footage and the ocean floor projected below our feet, Australian Oceans allow us to dive deep, explore our beautiful waters, and get up close with spectacular sea creatures.

Infinity is a magical, dream-like journey soaring across our snow-capped mountains, verdant valleys and sublime sunsets before diving deep to our ocean floor, visiting our native marine life, birds and more along the way. 

Invincible Corals

Inspired by a dive through the famed shipwreck, the artist created digital corals that can self-generate and grow upon any surface they’re projected onto, adapting to their Vivid house home.

Come to Wildlife & Wild Places to Get up-close with koalas in our towering eucalypt forests, snorkel with green sea turtles among the vibrant corals of the Great Barrier Reef, and take a bird’s-eye view of whales feeding in the frozen waters of Antarctica.

Inspired by this year’s festival theme ‘Naturally’, Wildlife & Wild Places highlights these spectacular sites and iconic animals that are, unfortunately, under threat of being lost forever.

The Last Ocean, Stargazer Lawn, 27 Hickson Rd, Barangaroo NSW 2000

This massive tessellated ‘ice sheet’ is made of reclaimed ocean plastic. Your movements upon the expansive artwork stir the seas, causing them to splash up and shift the ice’s shape and colour under your feet. Capturing the sublime beauty of Antarctica even as it melts and shifts due to warming waters, The Last Ocean is an ode to what we risk losing if we don’t limit our impact on this Earth.

Bloomlight, King Street Wharf, The Promenade, Lime Street

At Bloomlight, King Street Wharf, the four-metre streetlights keep their lamp shade-like head closed. But as you approach, they come alive. Bending towards you and slowly ‘blooming’, they light up and open more the closer you get, excited by your presence.
