Vivid Sydney's wildest precinct is back - better, bolder and more beautiful than before and this time backed by American Express.

Step inside a world of scientific discovery and become a Light For the Wild. Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo is shining a light on conservation and the wonders of wildlife with a spectacular display of light sculptures. Alongside the festival favourites from last year, you'll meet a whole new mob of awe-inspiring animals.

Walk through the mouth of a shark as it splashes through the facade of Taronga's heritage entry building, to emerge into a marine world and meet some of NSW's most magnificent aquatic species. Next, tread quietly through the Sumatran jungle, finding rare and ferocious creatures along the way. Alight into the Taronga Centenary Theatre and be immersed in a 270 degree cinematic light and sound spectacle. Enjoy a rest at the Taronga Food Market, beneath a canopy of stars and a glowing planet earth, as imagined by young children, before a trip through a glowing Australian bush-scape takes you all the way home.

Each of these incredible installations and light sculptures tells a fascinating tale about conservation. Discover the stories about these beautiful animals and learn how Taronga is working to help save 10 species from extinction over the next 10 years.

For the first time Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo is backed by American Express. Keep a look out for great ticketing offers and onsite benefits. Check back for more details.

Vivid Sydney runs from Friday 25 May to Saturday 16 June, 2018.
