Family Fun at Vivid Sydney at Chatswood



Vivid Family

Vivid Sydney at Chatswood’s family friendly offerings feature a special daytime installation at Chatswood Chase Sydney, night time installations open from the earlier time of 5.30pm, a lantern making workshop, and plenty of easily accessible, interactive installations and dining options.

Light Bounce at Chatswood Chase Sydney welcomes the youngest of Vivid-goers with a fun daytime experience. Visitors small and tall will are immersed in the light of a forest of totems adorned with colourful patterns and reflections. The installation is open during centre trading hours (9.30am - 5.30pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and until 9pm on Thursdays; and 9am to 5pm on Weekends), with the best parking to see the installation on level one or two of the Chatswood Chase Sydney car park.

A Steam Punk Space Ship Lantern Making activity is taking place in The Concourse Art Space (next to the Box Office) every evening until Sunday 11 June, 5.30pm - 8.30pm. Kids can create and colour their own lantern that will be added to a communal light. Lanterns can be collected and taken home on the final weekend of Vivid Chatswood.

Night time installations feature heavily on interactivity to entertain and excite kids and adults alike.

  • Gear Shift at Chatswood Interchange, on the Level 3 footbridge is a space where kids can control a steam-powered machine with their movements.
  • Crossword in Chatswood Mall will see attendees become part of the installation as hidden messages appear on revellers.
  • Octopoda - Hanging above Hawker Lane, Westfield Chatswood the Octopoda invites attendees to play its eight tentacle drums.   As each drum is played a unique display of colour and light explodes out of the drum animating the Octopoda’s musical mind.  When all eight drums are played at once the whole Octopoda comes to life, dazzling audiences.
  • Future City, Smart City - The sails of The Concourse are home to a fantastic story the whole family can sit back and enjoy. Images and sound will transport you into the realm of Future City, Smart City where people have taken to the air to create a sustainable community.

Vivid Sydney at Chatswood’s night time installations are located in the centre of Chatswood CBD, from Chatswood Interchange and along Victoria Avenue to The Concourse. The installations in the precinct are positioned close together making it an ideal light walk for children. There’s also plenty of space for those bringing a stroller. Families are also encouraged to attend Monday through to Wednesday, when crowds are at their lowest.

The Chatswood Interchange is home to both trains and buses, and this is the best place to start your experience.  There’s also plenty of parking at Chatswood Chase Sydney, Westfield Chatswood, The Concourse and Albert Avenue Car Parks.

While in the Precinct, parents can access Parents Rooms in Chatswood Westfield on level 3 near Dollar King, baby change facilities at The Concourse on ground floor next to the box office, and at Chatswood Interchange in the disabled toilets.
