Botanic Gardens, Vivid Sydney, Sydneyland

This "SYDNEYLAND" sign is an art installation created by Alexander Berlage and Jeremy Allen for the Vivid Sydney Festival. The illuminated letters beam across Sydney Harbour at night for the duration of the festival between 26 May and 17 June 2017. It is located at the edge of the Botanic Gardens along Tarpeian Way, the pathway that runs along the edge of the steep cliff known as the Tarpeian Wall. When the rock at Bennelong Point was cut away in 1880, to build the road that now leads to the Opera House, the wall and the path were named after the Tarpeian Rock, which overlooks the Roman Forum.


  1. Did you go to the Vivid Sydney Festival this year? Did everything look fantastic at night?

    1. Yes, I did go last weekend and the city looks amazing lit up at night. The event has become so huge now that the crowds make it difficult to photograph a lot of the artworks.

    1. I think it would be good to have some sort of "Welcome to Sydney" sign somewhere around Circular Quay.

  3. A shame it's only for the festival. Looks really nice.
