Vivid 2024 is set to be one of Sydney's top winter attractions, and for good reason. The annual festival features everything from spectacular light installations to musical performances to food experiences. There's truly something for everyone!

This year's theme is "Vivid Sydney, Humanity". It will explore qualities such as love, kindness, compassion, and creativity - the things that make us human!

Vivid 2024 will take place from Friday 24 May - Saturday 15 June, and span 8.5km from Circular Quay to Central Station. Whether you venture out to Darling Harbour or The Rocks, there will be plenty of music and food to fuel your night.

Vivid Sydney is all about accessibility and inclusion, so people of all ages and abilities can enjoy their night in a safe and inclusive environment. All the installations are wheelchair accessible and have QR codes for audio descriptions.

Here are our top accessible picks for Vivid 2024 that you can enjoy with your Like Family Social Carer or Member:
