Vivid Sydney Dinner Cruise Experience

Vivid Sydney is back for the year 2019, gifting Sydney an aural and visual treat of lights, music and creativity! With exceptional marketing, partnership campaigns and outstanding programming in the pipeline, Vivid Lights 2019 is primed to outdo the previous year.

The Vivid Sydney Harbour cruise aboard the Showboat treats you to the best of the Vivid spectacle that transforms Sydney into a creative canvas of lights, music and ideas.

Vivid Sydney’s most spectacular displays are centred on the harbour, making a Vivid Sydney Harbour cruise one of the most sought-after experiences during this Lights Festival. These magical displays can be seen and experienced from ashore, but a Vivid harbour cruise is the best way to enjoy the brilliance of this aquatic wonderland.

As you board the Sydney Showboat for your Vivid cruise, glamorous showgirls usher you into the old-world paddlewheeler that celebrates the quixotic world of glitz and glamour. . The Showboat Vivid dinner cruise is a winning combination of dazzling light installations that illuminate the harbour, a spectacular cabaret show by stunning showgirls, dancers & musicians and a two-course seated and served deluxe dinner.

You will be regaled by our in-house entertainers while you enjoy your delectable meal. You can take in the Vivid spectacle in all its glory as you stroll the wrap-around balconies of the Showboat. The magical transformation of the sails of the Sydney Opera House as they come alive with brilliant patterns and colours is the hallmark of the Vivid festival!

Be there on the Showboat Vivid dinner cruise to capture the creative side of Sydney in all its flamboyance!
