Getting there
Central Station is on George Street at the southern end of the Sydney CBD and is one of the city’s major transport hubs. You can get there by train, bus or light rail from all over the city. The start of The Goods Line is just a five-minute walk from Central Station towards Ultimo and it runs for 800m to Darling Harbour. There are light rail stops along most of the route.

Highlights not to miss include: 

Convergence, by Mandylights
The largest scale laser installation in Vivid Sydney history–with more than 100 custom-made laser units–create a spectacular, immersive visual experience. The unused Goods Line tunnel becomes a portal to a spectacular convergence of lights, lasers and smoke effects that will leave guests wondering where the tunnel leads and what they'll discover as they journey deeper underground.

Vivid Reflections, by The Electric Canvas
This interactive projection uses motion capture technology to turn your movements into animated action, then beams them onto the landmark clock tower. You’ll be transported, in fantastic and unexpected ways, to the places that make Sydney unique, from Bondi Beach 
to exploring Sydney's amazing cultural diversity, or becoming one with the city’s nightlife.

We Dream the City, by Essem Projects
As you stroll along The Goods Line, the back wall of the Powerhouse Museum comes alive with animated vision of Sydney’s streets through time, creating a 130m-long meditation of the forces that have shaped Sydney. This moving mural uses footage from the ABC, the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, the former Maritime Workers Union, the Transport for NSW Historical collection and more.

Frankly, My Dear..., by Sinclair Park
See the Frank Gehry-designed UTS Business School in a whole new light. By illuminating its windows with colour-changing cove lights and wall grazers, Sinclair accents the crumpled-looking exposed brick form with jewel bright hues. Seen from the Goods Line, Frank Gehry’s unmistakable ‘paper bag’ aesthetic suddenly looks as enticing as a bag of mixed lollies.

Shard, by Lumos Creatives
This trio of light sculptures acts as a platform for the stories of Yolngu dancers Baykali Ganambarr, Wakara Gondarra and Watjarr (Marko) Garmu, with LED screen technology giving them a new way to express themselves that truly brings their language to fresh eyes and ears. Watch as the fire dances, the yidaki (traditional didgeridoo) sings and poetry is spoken.

Smash, by Creative Road Art Projects Pty
An arresting video projection of a pair of bejewelled stilettos stomping and splashing through puddles of silver paint. It’s a play on the Vivid Sydney 2022 theme of ‘Soul of the City’, as a ‘sole’ of a different kind can be seen as a catalyst for change.
