Chinese New Year Celebrations in Cairns 2016!

The Cairns Chinese New Year festival highlights our Chinese heritage right here in Cairns Tropical North Queensland and the significance of the New Year through dance, music and cultural performance.

This year, the celebrations start from 3rd to 21st February 2016. So come along and celebrate the year of the Monkey in Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef with your family and friends!
