Vivid Sydney is just days away, with the city set to come alive for the 11th annual festival of light, music and ideas.

BridgeClimb are upping the ante this Vivid festival, with a dedicated Climb Then Dine package for corporate teams.

Donning a flashing Vivid Climb vest, groups will climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to view the bright Vivid lights from one of the best vantage points in the city. They’ll then get to dance under the stars on the illuminated flashing dance floor atop the bridge.

After your group descends, they’ll head to their own reserved area at The Australian Heritage Hotel for a two-hour food and beverage package. The offer is available for groups of 10 or more on Mondays through to Thursdays during the festival.
