CHINESE NEW YEAR - Light Up Newcastle Lantern Walk Festival, Sat Feb 24, 2018*

Don’t miss the 2018 Light up Newcastle Lantern Walk

We invite you to come witness the spectacular Lantern Walk during Chinese New Year on the evening of Saturday 24th,  February 2018 on the Honeysuckle foreshore.

The Lantern Walk had its origin in the 2015 Rotary International theme of “Light up Rotary”. The challenge set this year is to “Be a gift to the world” and local Rotary Clubs will provide a gift to the seafarers visiting the Port of Newcastle and the maritime heritage of our City.

Activities including dragon boat races, dancing dragons and lions, ribbon dance displays, Tai Chi displays and vocal performances will be happening throughout the afternoon and evening concluding with a fantastic fireworks display and cannon firing from Fort Scratchly from 9pm. Click here for a timetable of activities.

NOVA Cruises will be offering 2 cruises for you to gain the best views of the festival and the fireworks from the water.

1.) Our Dinner cruise will be departing from the heart of the action at Lee Wharf Honeysuckle at 7pm. Step aboard “The Princess” for a 3 hour cruise of Newcastle Harbour and see all the activities on the foreshore from the comfort of your own table. Enjoy appetisers on arrival, a gourmet buffet spread, artisan desserts and perhaps a drink from our cocktail bar. Apart from all the activity on the foreshore we will also have live entertainment onboard with soloist Steve Porter. We will position the vessel to get the best views of the 9pm fireworks and the cannons firing from the fort.

Ad $79pp, Con $74, Child (up to 17yrs $45)

2.) Our vessel “Bay Connections” will be conducting a special fireworks harbour cruise to showcase the fireworks. This cruise has complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits and light sweets and is a perfect cruise for those who have eaten onshore and want a good spot to view the fireworks and cannons firing without the crowds. This cruise departs at 7:45pm and returns after the fireworks conclude at approximately 9:30pm. A licenced bar is available onboard.
