If you’re out enjoying the lights at Vivid this year, make sure to keep an eye out for the dazzling Wirawi Ferry as it cruises Sydney Harbour on Fridays and Saturdays.

Built in 1974 and originally known as the Lady Northcott, the Wirawi Ferry is run by Tribal Warrior has been transformed to fit the Vivid vibe with a number of lights installed on the craft that make it dazzle in the darkness. 

Adorned with Aboriginal artwork, the extensive passenger vessel is looking to provide Vivid attendees with a remarkable view of all the best light installations in Sydney on a beautiful, historic ship.

The Wirawi isn’t just another set of lights to admire on your night out, though; you can also board the ship for a cruising experience unlike any other for Vivid 2024.

Tribal Warrior CEO Shane Phillips said: “We are thrilled to reintroduce the Wirawi Ferry to the people of Sydney and visitors from around the world. 

“This iconic vessel holds a special place in the city’s history, and we are proud to showcase its transformation into a symbol of Aboriginal culture, innovation and artistry for Vivid 2024.”

There are two voyages per night that each last approximately 2 hours. Each trip includes a Tribal Warrior smoking ceremony on board the ship, a sky story projection and one hot food snack per person, with vegetarian and gluten-free options available.
