The world famous Festival of Light, Music and Ideas with international live acts and awe-inspiring light shows is not to be missed. Don’t let the crowds deter you – there are many wheelchair accessible events in the Vivid program that runs in Sydney from May 25 to June 16.
Tumbalong Lights located at Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour, is a collection of four interactive-play installations that form an inclusive and accessible Vivid Light experience for both children and the young at heart. The four under-the-sea-themed installations allow children and their families to interact with creative, awe-inspiring light experiences that help produce a sense of empowerment, a sense of control and a sense of community, while at the same time inspiring fun and playfulness.
For the first time at Vivid Sydney, Tumbalong Lights offers an opportunity for families who have children with disability pre-book tickets free-of-charge to ensure a seamless festival experience.
