Sydney is transformed into a wonderland of innovative light installations and projections. Musical performances at the Sydney Opera House and at other venues throughout Sydney feature a lively eclectic range of live performances and musical collaborations.

Undeniably, there is more to New South Wales than one city. Beyond the glamour of Sydney, New South Wales is a unique Australian State with a dynamic range of rich experiences. Unearth ancient World Heritage listed sites including the grand Blue Mountains National Park and Lord Howe Island, home to the world’s most southern coral reef.
