From march 23rd to June the 9th, Sydney lights up. The vivid festival attracts thousands of people to Sydney city each year to celebrate light, ideas and music with Light installations illuminating the city, from Martin place down to circular quay and over to the rocks. Among the biggest attractions are the lighting of the sails of the opera house and our coat hanger (the Aussie nickname for the harbour bridge).
