Vivid is turning the lights back on tonight, illuminating the city with projections, colours, swirling visuals, interactive art and glowing installations along its longest-ever Light Walk.

As ever, Barangaroo’s full of things to see by and over the water – including The Last Ocean, the largest installation in Vivid history; projections of Australian nature scenes all over Barangaroo House; The Tunnel, made up of 8000-plus LED lights you can walk underneath; and Night Walkers, a collection of giant glowing amphibian sculptures that play frog songs.

Broadsheet photographer Yusuke Oba got a sneak peek at the lights in Barangaroo ahead of tonight’s official launch. Click through our gallery for what to expect.

This year, gift them a dinner to remember with a Broadsheet Gift Card.


Vivid Sydney 2023 runs from May 26 to June 17.
