Last minute attractions

Net ready to say goodbye? There are a few more highlights to visit, including:

Vivid Light Walk

Take a spectacular stroll along the dazzling light walk. There are 65 spectacular illuminations and 3D building projections winding along the city waterfront and into the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Major projections and interactive installations include the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) and Cadmans Cottage.

Game-Changer: Shepard Fairey

The artist behind the famous Obama ‘Hope’ 2008 presidential campaign poster is participating in a Vivid Ideas Game-changer Talk. The session with Shepard Fairey kicks off at 7PM at Sydney Town Hall. Tickets are limited, so book here. Also worth highlighting: Shepard has spent the week in Sydney creating his largest public art mural at 309 George St.

Martin Place

Martin Place is a foodie hotspot where the team from Sydney restaurant Porteño is creating an Argentinian-inspired menu of NSW meats cooked over an open flame fire-pit. Here visitors can also quench their thirst with some of NSW’s best beverages, whilst devouring some of the best food treats the city has to offer, including ‘glownuts’ –  glow in the dark donuts!
