St Kilda, Australia: Take a ‘wok’ down to Melbourne’s Luna Park this Chinese New Year and join in their fun-filled celebrations – which will no doubt leave you ‘wonton’ more! Over the last weekend of Chinese New Year – Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st February – Luna Park is inviting you to celebrate the Chinese zodiac and ‘Monkey’ around, enjoying their oriental inspired entertainment.

In true Chinese New Year style, the park will come alive with red Chinese lanterns and traditional dance performances. Kids will be able to immerse themselves in Chinese culture in the craft activity area where they will have the chance to get creative and make their very own Chinese fans and lanterns. The Chinese Museum will also host cultural workshops, explaining the Chinese zodiac and the meaning behind the Year of the Monkey.

Known to bring people joy, happiness, good luck and good health, the Lion Dancers will put on a roaring performance, followed by a Kung Fu demonstration. The grand finale will see Melbourne’s largest and longest Hong Kong style performing Dragon breathe fire into Luna Park!

If you’re still hungry for more, you’ll be able to sample some traditional Chinese cuisine from Luna Park’s very own café – you’d be crackers to miss out!

Get yourself down to Luna Park to enjoy the seaside breezes and picturesque views overlooking the famous Port Phillip Bay. Luna Park favourites, the iconic Scenic Railway and the traditional Carousel, prove why the park is still a much-loved attraction for so many Melburnians and tourists alike.
