Chinese New Year celebrations

10 Mar 2016

Chinese New Year celebrations Image

Southbank was a buzzing sea of activities and illuminations throughout last month’s Chinese New Year celebrations.

Cultural performances, lighting installations and food stalls lit up the river promenade stretching from the arts precinct down to Crown Casino, with Queensbridge Square providing the hub for the celebrations.

The final weekend from February 19 to 21 saw the area surrounding the renowned red steps come alive, with thousands flocking through the Monkey Arch Corridor installation from Sandridge Bridge.

Lion and dragon dancers and Chinese drummers provided roving entertainment, which was also complemented by an installation of lanterns depicting Chinese Opera with a matching soundscape located on the Queensbridge Square stage.  

Australia’s largest illuminated dragon head drew crowds to the Eureka Skydeck Plaza, while Chinese zodiac lanterns and illuminated pandas lit up the Evan Walker Bridge and Southgate Promenade.
