Enjoy the Chinese New Year Parade and the Fireworks!

The Chinese New Year Twilight Parade, on February 21, Sunday, is one of the highlights of the Chinese New Year Festival in Sydney. This is a parade of all that is beautiful, adventurous, spectacular, delish and Chinese. Quaint, charming lanterns. Flashy, brilliant colours. Dazzling, whirling skirts. Stilt walking, acrobatics and kung fu. Breath-takingly magnificent floats. Appetising, tempting flavours. And much, much more!

The Parade will conclude with a spectacular bang, quite literally, at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour. The dazzling fireworks at Cockle Bay will light up the bay, throwing an array of colours on the harbour, displaying the beauty of the harbour in different hues!

Enjoy the music, the dances and the martial art performances! Wonder at the stupendous costumes! Marvel at the amazing floats! Glare back into the eyes of the giant.

Tiger on the prowl that represents this New Year’s Chinese zodiac! Thrill to the spectacle of the brilliant fireworks!

As always, the harbour will be the nerve centre of all twilight, evening and night celebrations in Sydney! To make the most of the harbour, enjoy a Sydney Harbour Dinner Cruise ! Dining on a harbour cruise is one of the best attractions of Sydney and an iconic experience in itself!

Surprise your love with a Valentine’s Day Cruise!

With the Valentine’s Day just a few heartbeats away, what would be the best way to say “I love you?”

No, not with jewellery!

And definitely not with gifts or cards or both – they are, if not common, predictable at best!

The best way to say them would be, well, to just say them in plain simple words.

Over a glass of wine? Perhaps.

On a starry night on the deck of a boat? Yes.

In front of the Sydney Opera House? Under the Sydney Harbour Bridge? Yes. Yes.

So forget the oh-so-predictable choices and surprise your valentine with a showboat dinner cruise around the Sydney Harbour!

With the romance and the roses, and the wine and the views, and the music and the dance, make your Valentine’s Day very special and memorable!
