The atmosphere by 6pm was one of anticipation with the harbour foreshore between Circular Quay and the Opera House lined with photographers …. professional and amateur …. all waiting for the light show to begin. The haunting music began and the lights slowly lit up the city buildings, the museum of contemporary art and the opera house. There was hushed silence as people watched and waited for what was to come next …. quite different to the partying and revelry of New Years Eve fireworks. This was gorgeous, stylish, creative and sophisticated. There are simply not enough superlatives to describe it …. and that is just one location …. there are many.
I couldn’t help but think how children would adore both the light show and the many “light artworks” …. there are over 60 light installations covering the harbour foreshore around to Walsh Bay. The night markets and Rocks Precinct is my next stop but really can’t wait to get to the Opera Bar on a Friday night during Vivid Sydney for a glass of Prosecco and …. I am told fabulous music.
