Circular Quay, Vivid Sydney, geodesic dome


The "Geodesic Light Dome" was been installed along the Circular Quay foreshore as part of the Vivid Sydney Festival, the annual festival of light, music and ideas which is running from 23 May to 9 June 2014. This view of the geodesic dome has the Sydney Harbour Bridge as a backdrop. The illuminated Vivid Sydney signposts provided information about light installations and events all around the city. The view in the opposite direction can be seen here.

  4. An interesting dome sculpture. It suggests a window on the world with all those geometrical open areas.

  6. Hey Jim,
    They say that we speak the same language, but I have a bit of a problem with vocabulary. Quay? You have some wonderful photo opportunities. Tom The Backroads Traveller

    1. Tom, the differences in English between locations is amusing. A 'quay' is a wharf, dock or reinforced bank where ships are loaded or unloaded. Circular Quay was was originally mainly used for shipping and these days still features the ferry wharves, a passenger terminal for cruise ships and other wharves for leisure craft. It's not a common word these days but it has been retained in the name here and is pronounced 'key'.
