Lunar Lanterns

Join us to celebrate the Year of the Pig.

Produced by the City of Sydney


This year we celebrate the 23rd year of the City of Sydney’s Sydney Lunar Festival, one of the biggest and most vibrant Lunar New Year celebrations outside Asia.

This year our Lunar Lanterns exhibition features large-scale artworks that honour the animals of the Chinese zodiac. The works have been created by talented Asian–Australian artists who have brought a modern flavour to traditional celebrations.

Take a stroll around Circular Quay from Sydney Opera House to The Rocks and discover the larger-than-life animal signs of the lunar zodiac.

Bring the whole family and get up close to these magnificent giant artworks. The Lunar Lanterns are a creative, contemporary interpretation of a centuries old tradition.

Designed by Asian–Australian artists with Festival Curator Valerie Khoo, the Lunar Lanterns tower up to 13 metres tall.

Delight in modern technology blended with classic Chinese techniques as these magical lanterns light up Sydney’s harbour.

While you visit the Lunar Lanterns along the foreshore be sure to check out the lights of the Sydney Harbour Bridge lit in festive red and pink for the festival’s 10 nights.
