Sydney's Vivid light festival have taken on a royal flavour with iconic landmarks around the harbour lit up in regal purple to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The seven-minute light show began at 9pm on Thursday as part of a national program that saw landmarks illuminated to coincide with official celebrations in the United Kingdom.

The Harbour Bridge, Luna Park and buildings around Circular Quay and Sydney Harbour Ferries were emblazoned in purple.

NSW Parliament will be illuminated until Sunday.

Other buildings and landmarks include the Sydney Cricket Ground and CommBank Stadium, as well as several buildings at Sydney Olympic Park.

Government House in Sydney will be lit up until June 13 and will welcome the public on June 12, the Sunday of the Queen's birthday long weekend.
