    Chang Lai Yuan Chinese Gardens in Nurragingy Reserve will be adorned with colour as we prepare to ring in the Year of the Rat.

    Grab your family, friends and picnic blanket and join us for an evening of:

    • live cultural stage entertainment
    • food and market stalls
    • Kids Shows
    • free kids rides
    • interactive workshops and demonstrations
    • free kids craft- lantern making, fan decorating, calligraphy, origami and more!
    • lion and dragon dance
    • traditional Chinese New Year blessing ceremony
    • roving performers

    In light of the devastating nature of recent events, and in remaining compassionate to those that have suffered significantly as a result of these fires, the fireworks display at this years event has been cancelled.

    Chinese New Year is a holiday in which people honour household and heavenly deities, as well as their ancestors. More modern generations also see the holiday as a time for family to celebrate and come together.
