Where to celebrate Chinese New Year in Australia
From the Lunar Lanterns that light up the western boardwalk of the Sydney Opera House to celebrations in the heart of Chinatown, there's plenty to do in the city. There's even a gorgeous wishing tree in the iconic Queen Victoria Vuilding that at first glimpse looks like a cherry blossom tree, but when you look closer, is actually covered in adorable plush pigs!

If you're in Melbourne for Chinese New Year, we'd recommend the Dragon's Awakening Ceremony where a Chinese dragon, lions and street performers amongst others will make their way through Chinatown. Learn more about it here.
Keen for a mix of traditional Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese dances, cultural performances, firecrackers and hands-on workshops? Then head to Chinatown Mall in the Queensland capital for a dose of culture.
The Western Australia capital will host a Chinese New Year fair on February 10th so if you're keen for a cultural extravaganza, get all the details here.
For a loud and lively affair, Adelaide is the place to be. On February 9th, stalls and entertainment will be set up across Gouger Street and Moonta Street to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
