Swap The Crowds For A Dazzling Feast This Vivid Sydney With The Jackson

Eat, Sydney / 24 April 2024

Ditch the walking this Vivid, and embrace the dining (and wining) on The Jackson!

Vivid Sydney is renowned for its dazzling light displays that transform the city into an open-air art gallery. But this year, why not elevate your experience and combine the spectacle with a truly memorable feast on the water?

The Jackson, Sydney’s iconic superyacht, is offering a unique opportunity to set sail amidst the Vivid lights on Saturday 8th June, with a captivating dining experience featuring the talents of Chef Nelly Robinson and the launch of the Vivid Sydney Drone Show!

Following his sold-out event last year, Chef Robinson returns to The Jackson’s kitchen for a one-night-only event. Renowned for his bold and creative dishes, he’s curated a bespoke six-course “colours” menu designed to electrify your taste buds while complementing the vibrant Vivid Sydney backdrop.

You’ll start off the evening cruising Sydney Harbour, taking in the kaleidoscope of Vivid lights, while enjoying a selection of delectable canapés. Cheese and onion or beetroot and tuna tarts, smoked oysters with blue pearls, and a delicious chicken and macadamia toastie are just a few tempting options to whet your appetite as you glide under the illuminated Harbour Bridge. As the night deepens, the real magic begins. Be among the very first to witness the breathtaking Vivid Sydney Drone Show. Hundreds of synchronised drones will come alive, painting dazzling aerial formations against the night sky. This mesmerising performance is a true marvel of creativity and technology, and you’ll have a front-row seat to experience it all.

Vivid Sydney The Jackson Food

As you settle in for the main event, Chef Robinson’s artistry takes centre stage. The evening commences with a delicate poached salmon entrée, infused with lemon myrtle, followed by a mouthwatering lamb shoulder served with fresh asparagus and herb risotto.

As the night progresses, soak in the breathtaking spectacle of Sydney’s transformed skyline. Chef Robinson will then unveil his culinary finale – a delightful edible banana creation, sure to be a conversation starter and a fittingly colourful conclusion to the meal.

For an extra touch of indulgence, consider adding the optional Tyrrell’s Wine Experience, designed to enhance the flavours of each course.

This exclusive experience extends beyond the exceptional food. As you cruise, live entertainment provides the perfect ambience, while the free-flowing bubbles upon arrival add a touch of festivity.

Following the four-hour journey, The Jackson will return you to King Street Wharf, perfectly positioned to continue your evening exploring the vibrant precinct of Barangaroo.

Tickets for this exclusive event start from $325 per person and are expected to sell out quickly.

So, if you’re looking for a truly special way to experience Vivid Sydney this year, consider setting sail with The Jackson and Chef Nelly Robinson. This promises to be an evening of exquisite food, breathtaking views, and a touch of magic under the Sydney lights.
