Climb the Harbour Bridge and dance at the top
The VIVID Night Time Climb will happen only during VIVID Sydney.
What an exciting event this promises to be. If you have never climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge, this is the perfect opportunity as it will be spectacular! You will be able to watch Sydney come alive while enjoying the light installations around Sydney Harbour from a unique vantage point.
You will be wearing your flashing VIVID Climb Vest, as you climb the Bridge. This will of course happen above the bright, bold and beautiful VIVID Lights. You will dance under the stars on the illuminated 70's style multi-coloured and flashing dance floor!
Facts about the Climb The climb will last about 3½ hours and there is a maximum of 14 people per group. You will follow the standard Bridge Climb route to the summit. Then you can do your dance routines under the stars at the top of the Bridge!
