Gongxi facai

Jan 26, 2020


Gongxi facai! Happy Year of the Rat 2020!  Celebrations in Cairns kicked off with a bang with dragon and lion dancing and fireworks at the Lagoon on the eve of the New Lunar Year on 24 February.  This week, our Pioneers of Cairns Exhibition will be  on display at Cairns Central Centre Court until 3 February.  Check out the Chinese artefacts  dug up during the Rusty’s Market redevelopment, Colin Walter’s minature model of Cairns’ Chinatown (1890s) or pick up a CNY 2020 Festival program.
