Kickstart a prosperous Lunar New Year at Immigration Museum with a one-day fest to celebrate the Year of the Dog.
On Sunday 25 February we will open the courtyard* to include your beloved pet dogs and best friends for a day of auspicious traditions, fortune telling, pooch parades, food and drinks for all on two or four legs.
Discover your fortune for the coming year with respected Chinese Astrology Fortune Teller Edgar Lok Tin Yung presenting Year of the Dog predictions for each Chinese Zodiac sign. If you want a more personalised reading, Edgar holds one-on-one readings with a surcharge throughout the day.
Oriental Teahouse will steam up our Atrium with their delicious dim sum, dumplings and Insta-famous raindrop cakes. The bar features craft beer from local brewery Moon Dog and four-legged friends are not forgotten – Canine Wellness Food Kitchen, Australia’s first dedicated food truck for dogs, are onsite to serve healthy gourmet meals, treats, dog beers and broths.
Bring your pooches and pals to strut and shine at our doggy parades, with prizes awarded for best dressed couple, most fashionable (traditional and modern), and most creative on the dogwalk. Register in advance or on arrival but start prepping your moves now.
To pre-register your dog please contact our bookings team.
