Melbourne's Chinese New Year program of events continues the tradition of the Dragon Parade on the first Sunday, following the first day of the first lunar month, with a range of activities that reflect the city's multiculturalism and unique characteristics.
Starting in the heart of Chinatown, Dai Loong, Melbournes Big Dragon, provides the cultural narrative as it weaves and connects the CBD and Fed Square (for the New Year countdown) with modern Chinese culture.
