Gong Xi Fa Cai !  Xin Nian Kuai Le !
Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese Lunar calendar.  Cairns has a strong relationship with China, and this is reflected in our relationships with our Sister City, Zhanjiang, and our Friendship City, Zhongshan. 

The hugely popular festival showcases the city's rich Chinese heritage through music, dance and cultural performances, food, market stalls, and a parade featuring the traditional Chinese dragon, lions and the 12 zodiac animals.In addition to thousands of local attendees, the annual Chinese New Year Festival attracts around 10,000 Chinese nationals to the city each year. Many of these visitors travel on specially-chartered flights from China to celebrate their important cultural holiday in Cairns.
