In 2017, Sydney will be illuminated by giant Lunar Lanterns representing the animal signs of the zodiac as we celebrate the Year of the Rooster.

More than 1 million people will flock to 80 spectacular events in Sydney’s Chinese New Year Festival, making it one of the largest Lunar New Year celebrations outside China. Find your zodiac amongst the Lunar Lanterns popping up around the city, enjoy cocktails, music and performance at the Westpac Lunar Lanterns Hub in Martin Place, then join the bustling crowds enjoying the flavours and sights of traditional celebrations in Chinatown.

In 2016, our Chinese New Year Festival celebrated its 20th anniversary. It also marked the 30th anniversary of our sister city relationship with Guangzhou.

Featuring 80 family friendly events, the festival attracted more than 600,000 local, interstate and international visitors. For the first time, Sydney lit up with 12 giant Lunar Lanterns representing the animal signs of the zodiac. As part of Westpac’s Painting the Town Red, the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and other landmarks were illuminated red for luck and prosperity.

We hope you can join this year’s Sydney’s Lunar New Year celebrations!
