Vivid Sydney, the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas recently welcomed marathon champion Kurt Fearnley and his family as the festival continues to champion access and inclusion.

The three-time Paralympic Gold Medallist, said he enjoyed spending time with wife Sheridan, children Harry, four and Emilia, six months and niece Laura, 13, in an inclusive, family-friendly environment.

“It’s great to know the organisers of Vivid Sydney have put a lot of thought and effort into the access and inclusion elements of this year’s festival,” Mr Fearnley said.

“Considerations such as featuring wheelchair friendly venues, Auslan interpreters at music and speaking events and audio-described tours are exactly the kind of things we need to make their way into the mainstream events and Vivid Sydney is leading the way.”

Pre-booked special access zone tickets are available to assist families with specific access requirements for Tumbalong Lights, an inclusive experience created by official Vivid Sydney Access and Inclusion Partner Cushman & Wakefield, along with Destination NSW. Visit
