Chinese New Year's Day was on Thursday, February 19, 2015. This is the year of the Goat (sometimes called the year of the Ram/Sheep). Chinese New Year has a long tradition in Melbourne, and includes fifteen days of cultural festivities, starting with New Year's Eve and culminating two weeks later with a Lantern Festival. Feasting, firecrackers and the awakening of the dragon are just some of the traditional festivities in Melbourne's Chinatown and at Southbank.

  1. Red is the color of Chinese New Year. Lots of fireworks, lots of food. This is what reminds me if Chibese New Year. Pictures are great, looks like it's a lot of fun.

  2. Wonderful colorful photography of the Chinese New Year Celebration!

    Happy Week to you,
