When Lunar New Year rolls around, there's one obvious place to go in Brisbane: the Chinatown Mall. Lion and dragon dances will saunter through the Fortitude Valley spot, fire shows will light up the night and traditional music will provide the soundtrack — as will an array of cultural performances and street performers.

Beneath plenty of lanterns, these Year of the Rat celebrations will also include workshops — so learn a new skill while you're commemorating the occasion.

It all happens from 4–9pm on Saturday, February 1 and 12–5pm on Sunday, February 2, and entry won't cost you a thing.

And if you're wondering about the tastiest part of Lunar New Year celebrations — the food, obviously — you'll be in the absolute best place thanks to Chinatown's many eateries. We recommend booking in advance, though, as you won't be the only one with that idea.
