Offering a rare bird's eye view of sparkling Vivid Sydney, viewers are taken on a journey over Sydney Harbour, through the Cathedral of Light installation in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, to Vivid Sydney's wildest precinct, Taronga Zoo.

Thousands of people have enjoyed this year's highlights including the Cathedral of Light, a 60 metre long light installation featuring more than 75,000 LEDs, and interactive love-o-meter, I LOVE YOU, Vivid Sydney's most romantic installation. At Taronga Zoo, guests adored the 4.3 metre tall, interactive tiger lantern, named Jumilah after the Zoo's female Sumatran Tiger."
