Conservatorium of Music, Vivid Sydney, Macquarie Visions

The Sydney Conservatorium of Music on Conservatorium Road in front of the Royal Botanic Gardens featured light projections as part of Macquarie Visions for this year's Vivid Sydney Festival. The theme of this display was Pastimes, reflecting on the broader cultural and social life which Governor Lachlan Macquarie and his wife Elizabeth Macquarie created for Sydney. The Macquaries began a new era in Australian popular culture by instigating annual fairs and workers public holidays for commemoration, hosting balls, founding parks, gardens, sports fields and the first horse race. Many of these social activities and pastimes are still enjoyed in Sydney today along with many more.
