Vivid Sydney returns in 2018 from 25th May to 16th June. As one of the most popular venues, Taronga Zoo Sydney brings wild times to life with spectacular display of giant animal light sculptures. The family friendly show shines a spotlight on conservation and endangered wildlife after the zoo closes each afternoon.
Lights For the Wild at Taronga Zoo Sydney
Giant multimedia light sculptures will introduce the stars of the show, lead by the majestic Sumatran Tiger and giant Aussie Bilby. Joining them will be familiar members of the mob and newbies including an epic Goanna and a school of Blue Devil Fish. The journey leads you the façade of Taronga’s heritage entrance into a marine world and on through the Sumatran jungle to the Taronga Centenary Theatre. Here, visitors will enjoy a multi-award winning animated film, presented as a 270° cinematic experience.
The next stage of the journey passes beneath a canopy of stars and glowing planet earth from a child’s imagination. Then it’s on through an illuminated Australian bushscape as you head home.
