Sydney Harbour Bridge has seen a 15-metre Chinese Dragon dancing over it. The Dragon was manned by nine performers following a drummer and two cymbal players. The celebration also marks one year since the bridge established its first Mandarin-speaking guided tour, which happens at least once a day.

In the past decade, Chinese visitors have more than tripled to Australia and their numbers are predicted to continue rising at over 10 percent for the next 2 years, according to the Tourism Forecasting Committee. The Lunar New Year begins on January 31st this year.
