Plans have been laid to use Sydney's Harbour Bridge as a beautiful background image for the upcoming Vivid Sydney festival. Dubbed a celebration of “light, music and ideas,” this four year old celebration aims to encourage residents to consider work and housing in North Sydney.
A PLAN to use the Harbour Bridge as a giant backdrop for the Vivid Sydney festival has been proposed, showcasing an expansion of the light show across two central business districts.
The mayor of North Sydney, Jilly Gibson, is bidding for the annual ''celebration of light, music and ideas'' to reach beyond the Opera House, Walsh Bay and The Rocks to landmark sites across the harbour, including Kirribilli, Milsons Point wharf, North Sydney Olympic Pool and Luna Park.
