7 ideas for corporate groups during Vivid Sydney

With Vivid Sydney launching tomorrow, we've rounded up some of the best venues and experiences for corporate groups to take in all the action.
Vivid Sydney, the city’s annual festival of light, music and ideas, promises to be bigger and brighter than ever when it illuminates the Sydney from 24 May to 15 June.

Here are some of our favourite spots for corporate groups to watch the light spectacular unfold:

Cruise Bar

Cruise Bar at Circular Quay is getting into the Vivid spirit, giving groups the option to hire Junk Lounge exclusively during the festival.

Located on level two, Junk Lounge guarantees groups front row seats to all the Vivid action.

For groups of 100 guests or more, Junk Lounge is offering a special Vivid package, which includes exclusive use of the venue and three-hour food and beverage package crafted by head chef Patrick Haney.

The package also includes a complimentary spiced mulled wine and hot toddy bar, plus VIP transfers home for five top guests. Enquire here.

Captain Cook Cruises

There’s nothing quite like watching the Vivid lights from the water, so why not gather your group for a Vivid cruise?

As an official partner of Vivid Sydney, Captain Cook Cruises have a number of Vivid packages on offer, as well as private charters for groups of 30 or more. Enquire here.


BridgeClimb are upping the ante this Vivid festival, with a dedicated Climb Then Dine package for corporate teams.

Donning a flashing Vivid Climb vest, groups will climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to view the bright Vivid lights from one of the best vantage points in the city. They’ll then get to dance under the stars on the illuminated flashing dance floor atop the bridge.

After your group descends, they’ll head to their own reserved area at The Australian Heritage Hotel for a two-hour food and beverage package. The offer is available for groups of 10 or more on Mondays through to Thursdays during the festival. Enquire here.

Back for its fourth year, Taronga Zoo will illuminate with 240 multimedia light sculptures, including four new installations for a bigger and brighter Vivid experience.

Pier One

Introducing the most unique meeting space in Sydney this winter: ‘Igloos on the Pier’ at Pier One.

These themed pop-up igloos are not only a great space for an out-the-box meeting or event, they’re also a fantastic spot to soak up the Vivid atmosphere.

The traditional Winter Luxe Igloos are located along the pier and can be hired for private events of up to 20 people. The igloos are decked out in wintry furnishings, with faux furs and rugs, fairy lights and cosy seating.

A number of new igloos are also located throughout the hotel, including the Dream Igloo Suite, which sees the Harbour View Balcony Suite transformed into a a dreamy igloo sleepover experience; The Snow Globe, located on Pier One’s floating harbour pontoon; and The Gantry Dining Igloo, offering a hatted-restaurant dining experience in the hotel’s signature restaurant.
