Sydney's Chinese expat community has thrived for about the last 150 years, so they've been Chinese New Year celebrations held here since then. Most of the action centres around Chinatown and the adjacent Darling Harbour area, where there are markets, food stalls and red and gold dragons decorating everything. The fact that it's a nice time of year to see an outdoor, twilight parade spectacular finished off with some fireworks, means that many events attract hundreds of thousands of people – lots of them families – some who appreciate the cultural and historic significance, and some who appreciate the colourful parade and party.
