Lunar Lantern: The Monkey

Quick-witted, charming and lucky, the adaptable monkey livens up any occasion!

Produced by the City of Sydney

Louise Zhang’s impressive 8 metre tall monkey tower is new to Sydney Lunar Festival 2019.

Located at East Circular Quay, the monkeys will have the Sydney Harbour Bridge as a backdrop.

Delight in the playful monkeys balancing on top of each other, and juggling small glowing peaches, with a large golden peach at the top – the peach representing long life.
