Lunar Lantern: The Tiger

When

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

Cost

Free

Enthusiastic, courageous and ambitions, the Tiger is a born leader.  

Don't miss the opportunity for a photo with this biggest of the big cats during Sydney Lunar Festival.

In Chinese culture, the tiger incites both awe and admiration for its prowess, ferocity and beauty.

This big cat is full of life and embodies the spirit of achievement and the drive to make progress.

The tiger represents the greatest earthly power and protection over human life. The sign on this tiger’s forehead spells ‘king’, which is common in most Chinese symbols depicting a tiger.
