New Year’s Eve may feel like a distant memory, but for many, the celebrations are only just beginning. Australia’s largest and the Gold Coast’s only outlet centre, Harbour Town, is honouring one of the most important holidays of the year – Chinese New Year – throughout the month of February, that will see its dedicated Tourism Lounge come alive to mark the occasion.

Harbour Town will transform its Tourism Lounge with vibrant red and gold tones, paired with traditional Chinese décor for a month-long celebration, beginning on Monday 2nd February and culminating on Thursday 5th March 2015.

A spectacle of lion dances will parade through the Centre from Thursday 19th February – marking the turn of the Chinese calendar and Chinese New Year – until Sunday 22nd February; a ritual that is common during Chinese New Year celebrations that is believed to evict bad or evil spirits. Visitors to the Tourism Lounge in February will also receive a lucky red envelope.
