Vivid Sydney (an annual festival of bright colourful lights and music) is amazingly kid-friendly. Hands down, Circular Quay/The Rocks area is one of the (if not the) best vantage point to see the bright lights come alive on the Sydney Opera House; Customs House and The Museum of Contemporary Art.
There is a dedicated area for the kids to play at First Fleet Park. There are colourful rings (like a game of Twister) where the little ones can hop, jump and play in this enclosed space. For babies and toddlers, parent supervision is a given. Even the parents are stepping inside this space for an abundance of Vivid Sydney Fun.
As equally as the adults, the kids of Sydney will love going on a Vivid Sydney cruise, even if it's called the Manly Ferry.
Even on a school night, there are many kids to be spotted in the Circular Quay/The Rocks area of town on Vivid Sydney.
