Chinese New Year

The City, The Culture

Chinese New Year is celebrated big time in Melbourne.  There is a large Chinese population here and always lots of Chinese tourists.  Red and gold decorations are scattered all over the city from downtown Chinatown to the banks of the Yarra River as the celebrations are underway.  2017 is the year of the rooster, so roosters also feature prominently in the decorations.  Have a look around Melbourne and how they are celebrating the year of the rooster.
