First Fleet Park, Lunar Lanterns, Rat

Lunar Lanterns have been installed around Circular Quay to celebrate the Sydney Lunar New Year Festival. In the Chinese zodiac, every year is symbolised by an animal and this year is the Year of the Rat. This Rat lantern has been installed in First Fleet Park with the Sydney Opera House in the background. The Zodiac symbol of the Rat can be characterised as intelligent, adaptable and social. The quick-witted Rat cannot let an opportunity to prosper pass them by.


  1. This is an amazing structure. I like it.

  2. Very creative and whimsical, with new sculptures every Lunar New Year!

  3. One more and they can launch their plans for world domination. :)

  4. It's very cute. We've had chinese festivals here but a few have been cancelled.

    1. The same has happened in Sydney with some events cancelled due to fears over the coronavirus.

  5. Every culture has its own symbols.. but I find rats slithery little creatures. Then I suppose mice were too, until Mickey Mouse made them popular.

  6. Hello, what a fun festival. The lanterns are cute. Enjoy your day, happy weekend!
