Vivid Sydney is a transformational event that collaborates with boundary-pushing artists, thinkers, musicians, and culinary experts alike, in celebration of creativity, innovation and technology. Entering its thirteenth year, 2023 will discover the artistic direction of “Vivid Sydney, Naturally”, featuring a program designed to explore Light, Ideas, Music and Food.

With the city alive with art installations, 3D light projections, live music, and culinary experiences, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy this vibrant city. Combine Vivid Sydney with some of The Tailor’s favourite quintessential experiences to ensure your next (or first) journey to Sydney is your most memorable one yet.

World-Class Accommodation

One of the things we love most about Sydney is its collection of world-class luxury boutiques located in the heart of the CBD. When we think of boutique luxury city accommodation we think of; uninterrupted views over Sydney Harbour, luxuriously appointed suites and rooms, outstanding amenities and thriving dining options.

Park Hyatt Sydney is an outstanding boutique hotel in the heart of the city. Superbly located in the renowned Rocks district, and boasting uninterrupted views over Sydney Harbour, this has long been a favourite for discerning travellers.

Capella Sydney is the newest luxury offering to hit the scene in Sydney and has made quite the entrance. Perfectly located, luxuriously furnished, this accommodation is delightful.

  • Crown Towers Sydney is a testament to the Crown brand, offering travellers opulence and lavishness. Excellently located, this high-end hotel is a fantastic option for those looking for glitz and glamour.

Uniquely Sydney

Sydney thrives in the big moments, but also does boutique and unique very well. Discover some of our favourite uniquely Sydney experiences.

There is nothing more luxurious than the world’s rarest and most valuable Australian South Sea Pearl. Join pearling pioneers, Paspaley Pearls on a private behind-the-scenes experience at their flagship boutique in Martin Place.

  • Sydney Harbour is quintessentially Sydney, as is sailing the harbour with local Sydney experts, enthusiasts and resident Sydneysiders. Let your hosts treat you to a wonderful day on the water, regaling you with stories and sharing their city through a local’s eyes.
  • Join expert guides in pulling back the curtains on the Sydney Opera House with a private behind-the-scenes experience of this iconic location.
  • Great dining options in the city are limitless, but a 20-minute seaplane ride will transport you to the beautiful waterside dining venue, Cottage Point Inn, offering exceptional modern Australian Cuisine.

Take your adventures to new heights, and view Sydney from a truly unique perspective, atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge. A bucket-list experience for any traveller to Sydney!

Escape and Explore

Sydney’s vibrancy is alluring and intoxicating; however, a quick city escape can be the perfect remedy to relax, reset and ready yourself for your next adventure. Located just 90 minutes from Sydney’s CBD, we love the Blue Mountains and the wonderful opportunities these gorgeous ranges have to offer.

Breathe deep the pure mountain air as you arrive at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley. Sitting on 7,000 acres of conservation, Wolgan is a luxurious and indulgent mountain resort. Peaceful, luxurious, and good for the soul!

Test your limits and try something different by joining world-renowned adventurer, James Castrission, a unique journey deep in the Blue Mountains. Custom glamping tents provide comfortable overnight accommodation, whilst your days are filled with spectacular mountain landscapes, and adrenaline-inducing activities.

Whilst we think Vivid Sydney is an excellent time to visit Australia’s cosmopolitan capital, so can be said for any time of the year! Sydney’s vibrancy is not limited to one event and is an exceptional destination to travel year-round.
