Lunar Lantern: The Rooster

When

Every day, all day Friday 12 February to Sunday 21 February

Cost

Free

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.
