Discover the Sydney Harbour Foreshore’s newest technicolour playground. Wandering from Darling Square, through Darling Quarter and Darling Harbour, and continuing along the water’s edge to futuristic Barangaroo, you’ll experience 18 Vivid Light installations including interactive highlights like the Chronoharp and Sydney Infinity.

Getting there
Barangaroo is a five-minute walk from Wynyard Station through an underground tunnel. For Darling Harbour, Darling Square and Darling Quarter, there are four light rail stops running through the area. Or you can catch a train or bus to Town Hall and take a short walk down to the water. Ferries also run to both Barangaroo and Darling Harbour.

Highlights not to miss include: 

Nura, by Warwick Keen 
This mass installation of 150 colour-changing light pillars in Barangaroo Reserve presents a contemporary imagining of dendroglyphs, designs carved in the bark of living trees. Indigenous artist Warwick Keen draws inspiration from traditional South Eastern Australian tree carvings.

Our Connected City, by Mandylights 
Crown Sydney will be part of the vast Our Connected City installation for the first time in 2022, joining other Sydney icons as they are emblazoned with hundreds of colour changing lights. In this expansive visual spectacle, all of the lights are coordinated in perfect synchronisation and uniformity. Together, they connect us to our city and our environment.

The Gallery, by Solid Ground Program 
Wulugul Walk is transformed into a stunning visual gallery of light projections featuring First Nations and emerging artists from Western Sydney.

Bump in the Night, by James Dive
This interactive light installation draws inspiration from our daily encounters with Mother Nature. This artwork resembles a peaceful campsite, with muffled snores heard from within the tents. Any noise you make could wake up the campers–will you be a drop bear, a bunyip or a hungry bat?
