As we are heading up to the last weekend of Vivd expect more crowds and from experience - crowds and strollers do not work! The team at Vivid have given us some family tips to survive this event with your family (stroller optional). Vivid is something every family should see and for more information on what is on offer visit http://www.vividsydney.com
1. Go early in the week and early on!
Tuesday is set for fine weather and earlier in the week is less busy! The crowds build at the weekend so we suggest you make your Vivid visit on a weeknight.
2. Take an early mark: Martin Place now opens at 5.30pm every night!
Beat the rush and get to Vivid early – Martin Place opens at 5.30pm. There’s The Urban Tree to mesmerise the littlies, as a tree grows out of the ground and up a building, complete with birds and bugs!
3. Enjoy Vivid from one of the new precincts
There are newer Vivid precincts including Walsh Bay, North Sydney and Martin Place. Head to one of these spots for installations, projections and much more!
4. Leave the car at home and remember, ferries are very busy
There are an extra 3,500 bus and train services to help get families in and out of the city this year during Vivid, so families should plan their trip at www.vividsydney/transport
Ferries are also busy so bus and train are probably the way to go!
5. Catch a show – a water show that is!
Darling Harbour is again transformed each hour from 6pm into a theatre of water with spectacular water displays, fountains, water jets and lasers. There are also fireworks displays during the week as well as weekends - Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7pm.
