Vivid Sydney 2016 will host literal party animals by extending the festival to Taronga Zoo.
To celebrate the Sydney zoo’s 100th birthday, the light and music festival will cross the Harbour Bridge to bring its illumination spectacles to the zoo for the first time.
The festival promises huge projections across the zoo’s heritage-listed buildings coupled with larger-than-life animal light sculptures and thousands of lanterns.
NSW Environment Minister Mark Speakman said combining two of Sydney’s tourist attractions was a perfect way to highlight the zoo’s centenary.
‘For years Vivid has been shining a light on the city of Sydney and now it will shine a light on the conservation work done by Taronga Zoo.’
