2024 is the year of the Dragon, starting from February 10th, 2024 (Chinese lunar New Year Day) and lasting until January 28th, 2024. If you were born in 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012…, your Chinese zodiac sign is the Dragon.
As a large community of Chinese-Australians living in New South Wales, Sydneysiders love celebrating Chinese New Year each year.
Although this festival is celebrated across the country, Sydney does it differently. Chinese Australians celebrate this cultural festival with the same vigour and energy as in China.
