Walk the Lunar Lanterns your own way

From Sydney Opera House to The Rocks, discover the artists behind the lanterns and learn more about the 12 zodiac signs with a new walk.

Explore Sydney Lunar Festival’s popular Lunar Lanterns and the meanings behind them on a special Lantern Walk in the Sydney Culture Walks app.

New lanterns this year feature work by some of Australia’s most exciting contemporary Asian-Australian artists.

See the Pig Lantern at Sydney Opera House by Qian Jian Hua and the Monkey Lantern at East Circular Quay by Louise Zhang.

At the corner of Bligh Street and Barney Reserve, you’ll find the Sheep by Pamela See, and at Cadman’s Cottage in The Rocks find the Ox by Laurens Tan.

You’ll find details on each zodiac sign and work out your zodiac animal in the app. And if you’re a Pig, this is your year!

Zodiac Pigs are seen as considerate, responsible, independent and optimistic, but they can also be seen as lazy and lacking in action.

Once you’ve taken your selfies and marvelled at the view, head further into the city and explore other festival highlights.

To experience this walk and more go to either the Apple Store or download via Google Play.
