see it. hear it. taste it.
A uniquely Vivid Sydney experience hosted by BridgeClimb within the iconic South-East Pylon of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This hidden gem, which is a historic landmark, will be open to the public for the first time during the festival, providing guests with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to indulge in the unique views, local sounds, and flavours of New South Wales.
Take in the majestic views of Vivid Sydney from the Sydney Harbour Bridge’s South-East Pylon Lookout in style. Enjoy a red wine* paired with a cheese box from renowned chef Luke Mangan as light dances across the city’s skyline, streets and harbour, with DJs providing the perfect soundtrack. A multi-sensory experience!
With a chance to also learn more about the Sydney Harbour Bridge’s history via the Pylon Museum, you'll leave with a newfound appreciation of the city’s beauty and ingenuity, past and present - as on grand display in front of you. Providing one of the best vantage points of Vivid Sydney, the Pylon Lookout lets you take in the sheer scope, size and beauty of the Light Walk from above with a limited number of guests per session.
* Just a heads up, we're keeping things green and adhering to heritage by serving up your wine in a super cute, reusable, sealed cup. But no worries, the size doesn't change the amazing taste (we promise!) and it's filled to the top!
