Illuminate Sydney at Madame Tussauds

Inspired by Vivid Sydney, watch as you transform the city skyline at the ultimate celebrity party!

This Vivid Sydney, Madame Tussauds Sydney invites you to its most vibrant and colourful launch ever, as we turn on the lights at our new-look A-List Party zone, Illuminate Sydney.

Inspired by the city’s biggest annual event, the largest light festival in the southern hemisphere, Illuminate Sydney is the ultimate VIP launch party. And guess what— you’re on the guest list!

Step through the curtains and be transported to our exclusive Illuminate party on the harbour. Watch Sydney transform with light and sound as you rub shoulders with some of Australia’s biggest names and the world’s hottest celebrities. Prepare to be star-struck as you make your grand entrance alongside Chris Hemsworth, strike a pose with Angelina Jolie, snap a picture with Nicole Kidman and party with Ryan Gosling –to name-drop a few.

The best part? You pick the vibe for the whole city. You call the shots and switch up the luminescent hues to set the scene for the night. Watch in awe as you control the lights, projections and sounds of the room around you, set against the backdrop of our colourful city, brought to life by a mesmerising drone show as the Sydney Opera House model projections glimmer across the harbour.

With extended opening hours on select days throughout Vivid, revel in the ultimate fame experience with an unmistakable Sydney twist at Madame Tussauds.
