Chinese New Year Celebrations at Crown Casino

There is no surprise in saying Melbourne celebrates Chinese New Year with all its vigour. This year too in designated areas performances that evolved over the years to a unique fusion of Chinese and Australian art is on display.

I must stress that Indians living in Melbourne should make it a point to go out and see those celebrations as it provides an opportunity to open our hearts to a different but uniquely Asian culture. The culture of our neighbours, we fought a wars only to lose.


The cultural delight includes lion dance, dragons and Chinese delicacies – all in one place and the fireworks add spices to the whole celebration. Chinese New Year Celebrations are running in Melbourne from 2nd February to 21st February 2016.


The Festival links up events and celebrations across Melbourne from Chinatown to Federation Square, Southgate Melbourne, Crown Casino, Docklands, Queen Victoria Market and The Hotel Windsor. Box Hill and Springvale have their own celebrations as usual.
