Vivid Sydney shines brighter on this 2-hour glass boat cruise. Enjoy a buffet dinner with the art projections on the Opera House and Harbour Bridge in full view.


  • A regular boat cruise for Vivid Sydney views is fine, but a glass boat with floor-to-ceiling windows and cocktail-style dinner takes it to another level.

  • Veg, non-veg, grilled meats, pasta, salads – the buffet's got it all. Plus, drinks are sold separately at the bars on every floor.

  • This 2-hour cruise is all about socializing. High-top tables and 3 floors of space create the perfect atmosphere to enjoy Vivid Sydney.

  • From the open-air top deck, take in the Opera House and over 50 buildings lining the Harbour illuminated by colorful light projections.

  • Fun fact: In 2024, 3.48 million people attended Vivid Sydney. To put it in context, that’s 30% more than the entire population of Western Australia!

Vivid Sydney from a see-through throne

Local or visitor, this 2-hour cruise on a luxurious glass boat instead of a regular one is a fresh way to experience Sydney’s winter lights. The boat, Bella Vista, is designed to give you the best possible view of Vivid Sydney. With 3 spacious decks, including an open-air top deck and 3-meter-high glass windows, you won't miss a single moment of the magic.

Sip, snack, and sparkle

While the city sparkles outside, inside you'll enjoy a delicious buffet. It's a cocktail-style cruise with high-top tables so you can chat with your friends and move around easily. Tuck into dishes like roast chicken with herbs, fresh pasta, and a crisp garden salad. The dinner's casual and fun complementing the festive atmosphere. There's even a cash bar on board if you fancy purchasing drinks throughout the night.

Opera House makeover and beyond

This year's theme is Humanity, which is all about using art and light to bring people together. You’ll see stunning art installations and 3D light projections that light up Sydney's famous buildings and urban spaces. More than 50 buildings along Sydney Harbour will also be part of the show. Highlights this year include Julia Gutman's "Echo" on the Opera House sails, where she uses fabric and digital art to tell the story of Narcissus. Over at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Guan Wei’s "Sea, Sand and Stars" takes you from the ocean to outer space.
