Take a cupcake break and relax in a heated marquee at Vivid Sydney in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

June 12, 2018 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney transforms into a hive of activity after dark until 16 June. One of the most unique experiences at Vivid this year is like nothing else that Australia has ever seen and it is truly lighting up our lives. Yes, the 20 installations peppered throughout the Garden are impressive but we are talking about Australia’s first Cupcake ATM.

This cotton-candy pink striped ATM is taking all our money and in return, it’s satisfying our sugar cravings with magical melt-in-your-mouth galaxy themed cupcakes. Vivid visitors (Vivitors?!) can choose from two delicious vegan friendly flavours, red velvet or choc banana courtesy of Sparkle Cupcakery. We aren’t saying what our flavour is, you’ll have to try them both and we can compare notes afterwards.

The colourful assortment of yummy offerings doesn’t stop there, follow the glow and you will find lightbulb cocktails. Yup, another legendary way to treat yo’ self. Fuel your after dark adventures with two fruity flavours, a gin and vodka option – because we cater for everyone. The Melopepo is a blend of melon and peach liqueur combined with vodka and fresh lime poured over a citrus jelly base. Or relax by the lights in a heated marquee with a Gin Rubus, a raspberry liquer, orgeat and London Dry cocktail over a port wine jelly base.

To add to the excitement, we have set up an extra stop along the illuminated pathways of the Garden. There are two food and beverage hubs, one near the magnificent Aqueous and the other by Oasis. For those looking to grab n’ go we recommend the nachos or hot dogs – both of which have deliciously irresistible vegetarian options. The substitutions are so good that we asked the chef if there was a mix up. He happily confirmed that yes, they taste like the real deal but they are truly vegetarian and yes that’s Quorn in the nachos. Yum.

There is ample seating for those looking to take a break and a viewing platform near Farm Cove so you can marvel at the lights from above.

Vivid runs until 16 June from 6 pm to 11 pm every day. Entrance into the Garden is via the Queen Elizabeth II Gates near the Sydney Opera House Forecourt. To see the full list of installations in the Garden or to learn more about the Vivid in the Garden visit our site here.
