Honest, energetic and intelligent, the flamboyant Rooster is confident and is not afraid of hard work.

Brought to life by hundreds of egg-shaped glowing lights draped on a metal frame, the Rooster lantern symbolises the idea that many parts can combine to create a beautiful and unique whole. The design is inspired by Sydney’s many thriving communities – with each light representing a unique voice, story, or idea. Together, they show that diversity and inclusion can create a beautiful powerful force which shapes our sense of belonging and identity.
