Take a short stroll around Circular Quay to discover 12 larger-than-life animal signs of the Lunar zodiac. 

Explore the Lunar Lanterns from Friday 16 February to Sunday 25 February.

The Lunar Lanterns are a creative, contemporary interpretation of a centuries-old tradition. Exclusively designed by Australian artists, with Festival Curator Claudia Chan Shaw, the Lunar Lanterns tower up to 13 metres tall.

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

Find your zodiac sign, catch a live performance by our community groups or simply enjoy summer in Sydney in a unique celebration of the Lunar New Year. While you’re there, stop by Museum of Contemporary Art’s pop-up Colour Fields bar. It’s open until Saturday 24 February.

Download the Sydney Culture Walks app for a fun, easy way to navigate the festival and Lunar Lanterns.
