Chinese New Year/ Light up Newcastle

Celebrate the Chinese New Year in Newcastle with the Light up Newcastle event, a lantern walk hosted by The Newcastle Rotary Clubs.

The Lantern Walk had its origin in the 2015 Rotary International theme of “Light up Rotary”. Rotary Clubs undertake activities to support their local community. The event is free and family friendly.

The Newcastle harbourfront comes alive with splashes of red and gold, celebrating the Chinese New Year. Honeysuckle is transformed into a mini Chinatown, with Asian influenced food, cultural performances, lion dances and a fireworks displaying capping off the evening.

If you’re looking for accommodation in Newcastle for Chinese New Year celebrations, we would love to host you in our modern and comfortable apartments.

Contact us with any enquiries or requests and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
