5 Best Ways to See Vivid Sydney 2016
Vivid Sydney 2016 will be a vast, colorful event all over Sydney. Here are some suggested precincts to visit first, price info about Vivid tickets and many more.
One of the best way to see Vivid Sydney is, of course, beside Darling Harbour. This is where you will find the most spectacular displays of magical light. Although Darling Harbour Fireworks brought the legacy of this precinct’s grandeur, this year’s display is a water theatre. The Laser-Dragon Water-Theatre is made up of four video-projected water-screens, forty 20m-high vertical fountains, sixteen 25m-high moving fountains, twenty-two 15m-high flame jets, and ten powerful lasers.
Central Park in this year’s Vivid Sydney is more robotic. In this urban village, audiences will see some Vivid Light Show that shows the dynamic ways that robots are replacing human labor in faster rates. Ample Projects brings back to life the Carlton & United Brewery’s dynamic factory. While you go around Central Park, you can visit the Central Park Mall or the Silent Disco every Friday and Saturday nights. Enjoy Vivid Sydney, you’ll love this precinct for sure.
Events on Martin Place are all for free this Vivid Sydney! Some Vivid tickets may cost some money, but not here. This precinct shows the various and creative ways to use light to convey a message. Fountain, for example, shows the birth and death rates of humanity by projecting human droplets coming out of a digital fountain. Mountain of Light and Geometrics use intelligent sensors to create mood and shapes through movement. The Art of Performance is Jaguar’s display that gives the F-PACE a digital ride through light.
Harbour Lights is a precinct for the cruise ships. Here, be amazed as the coordinated light using Intel technology gets projected onboard each cruise vessel as they pass other precincts. Experience Vivid Sydney on board and get a grand vantage point for your photos or you can just watch by the Harbour as each cruise ship pass by. A truly wonderful Vivid Light Show for the family.
Taronga Zoo will be celebrating its Centenary year in Vivid Sydney 2016. To greet this wonderful year of the zoo, Ample Projects made gigantic light sculptures to adorn the zoo for the festival. Some of the animals to watch out for are Asian elephants and Corroboree frogs. These are the very animals Taronga Zoo sought to protect and preserve. A powerful message and spectacle for the next generation to be the light for the wild.
