Step inside a world of scientific discovery and become a Light For the Wild. Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo is shining a light on conservation and the wonders of wildlife with a spectacular display of light sculptures. Alongside the festival favourites from last year, you’ll meet a whole new mob of awe-inspiring animal light sculptures.

Wander through a marine world to meet some of NSW’s most endangered aquatic species and emerge from the mouth of a Port Jackson Shark as it splashes through the façade of Taronga’s heritage entrance. Tread quietly through the Sumatran jungle to encounter endangered and ferocious animals along the way before stepping into our Taronga Centenary Theatre to behold a multi-award winning animated film, presented here as a 270-degree cinematic experience. Pause a while and rest beneath a canopy of stars and a glowing planet earth as imagined by children, before a final journey through an illuminated Australian bushscape takes everyone all the way home again.

Each of these incredible installations and light sculptures tells a fascinating tale about conservation. Discover the stories about these beautiful animals and learn how Taronga is working to help save 10 species from extinction over the next 10 years.

Available to everyone to purchase, American Express Sky Pass tickets provide access to the Taronga Zoo Sky Safari at night to view the zoo from above and get a unique perspective of Vivid Sydney.
