Every year Sydney lights up with colours for Vivid, the festival of light, music and ideas. It’s a great way to coax people out of their homes on cold (by Aussie standards) winter nights. The vibrant colours stand out against clear dark night skies.

I missed it last year as I’d migrated to warmer climes in Bali for Sydney winter. I got serious FOMO seeing everyone’s amazing photos. So this year I traipsed round the whole thing enough times to give me blisters and saw EVERYTHING.

Here’s a collection of the best bits of Vivid Sydney 2016 as seen by me.
