Tips for Visiting Sydney Tower Eye During Vivid Sydney 

Best Times to Visit

To make the most of your visit to Sydney Tower Eye during Vivid Sydney, timing is everything. For optimal viewing and to avoid the biggest crowds, consider visiting on weekdays rather than weekends. Early evening, just before sunset, is a great time to arrive. This way, you can enjoy the transition from daylight to the vibrant night displays. The magic of Vivid Sydney truly comes to life after dark, so staying a bit later will reward you with the full spectacle of the illuminated cityscape.

Photography Tips 

Capturing the stunning light displays of Vivid Sydney from the Sydney Tower Eye requires some thoughtful planning. Here are a few tips to help you get the best shots:

  1. Use a Tripod: Stability is key for night photography. A small, portable tripod can help you take clear, sharp photos of the dazzling lights.
  2. Adjust Your Settings: Set your camera to a lower ISO to reduce noise, and use a longer exposure to capture the brilliance of the light displays. If you're using a smartphone, check for a "night mode" setting.
  3. Find the Best Angles: Explore different spots on the Observation Deck to find unique perspectives. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide excellent framing for wide shots of the city.
  4. Include Landmarks: Capture iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge in your shots to add context and scale to the light installations.
  5. Experiment with Reflections: Use the glass windows to create interesting reflections of the lights and add a creative touch to your photos.
