Cockle Bay Wharf celebrates Vivid Sydney
Light up your Vivid Sydney experience at Cockle Bay Wharf and let the beam from The Lighthouse guide you to an evening of mouthwatering maritime treats and much merriment for the whole crew.

You won’t miss the rotating beacon of light from Cockle Bay Wharf during Vivid Sydney this year. Located in the centre of the action, The Lighthouse installation marks the destination for shimmering restaurants and bars promising a hearty welcome. Indulge in delectable winter warming meals, a family augmented reality experience and an illuminating line-up of $12 cocktails to tempt every captain, sailor and salty dog. Beam at Cockle Bay Wharf runs throughout Vivid Sydney this year from 27  May until 18 June. 


Join us for front row seats along the Vivid Light Walk. Reservations are recommended to secure your spot in the centre of the Darling Harbour Vivid action. Take a break from the Light Walk with a bite at our cafes and restaurants or end your Vivid experience with illuminated cocktails at our bars.
