We decided that since we were right there where the action was we would see the lights around the harbour.
It was a dazzling spectacle and of course my favourite show was the Opera House and the dozens of projections on it's sails.
The amount of people walking around was phenomenal, we were almost bumping into people as we walked around the harbour - families with young kids, elderly people, etc., all were out having a good time even though the night temperature was around 10C.
It was difficult to hear, but a lot or probably all of the shows were accompanied to music, such as the one on the Museum of Contemporary Art.

On the 1885 heritage ASN Co Building on "The Rocks", the Mystery Gateau celebrated the 10th anniversary of Vivid Sydney as well as the 10th season of the well known cooking show - Masterchef Australia from Channel 10. Here mini construction chefs undertook a cooking journey working against the clock as it ticks down to the final reveal.
Next to the Overseas Passenger Terminal, this suspended Earth globe measuring 3,75mt in diameter had detailed images from NASA.

On the other side of the bay, the Sydney Harbour Bridge was fully visible, and the city centre buildings could be seen bathed in their bright colours.
A few random works of art caught my attention - Visible dynamics - a structure made up from different geometric shapes like a kid's stacking toy, Come fly with me - a series of airplanes in a flight trajectory drifting up into sky, changing angles and colour , or Fragmented - a rotating 2,4 x 2,4 cube made of steel and stained glass.

In between one side of the harbour and the other we stopped for a snack at one of the restaurants - it was already 10,30pm and we didn't want to risk the kitchens closing before we went home - I had a very fresh and tasty plate of fish and chips.
It was almost midnight when we finally got home, after an half an hour bus ride from the city.
We really enjoyed our first Vivid Lights festival! Which projections did you most enjoy?
