Lunar Lantern: The Monkey

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

Produced by the City of Sydney

Marvel at Louise Zhang’s impressive 8 metre tall monkey tower. Located at Cadman’s Cottage.

Colourful, playful monkeys balance on top of each other, and juggle small glowing peaches, with a large golden peach at the top – the peach representing long life.
