Observed all around the world, Lunar New Year is by far the most culturally historically significant holiday of the year for Asian communities.
In fact, there’ll be our very own roaring celebrations lined up here in Perth. You can take a wonder through the city between the 1-14 February and soak in the atmosphere that the beautiful red lanterns bring to Hay Street and Murray Street Malls, James Street (between Lake Street and Perth Cultural Centre) and William St (between Roe Street and Newcastle Street).
Check out some of the other ways to celebrate this festive holiday with your family and friends:
