Message from Mayor Bria - Lunar Year New


I extend my warmest wishes to members of the Chinese community as it comes together to celebrate the Lunar Year New – a time for family reunions and new beginnings. 

Festivals such as the Lunar New Year are an example of the time-honoured traditions celebrated and shared by the Chinese community, which contribute to the richness of our culturally diverse society and the success of multiculturalism in South Australia.

The 2021 Census showed Chinese-born people are the second largest migrant group in Norwood Payneham & St Peters, and Mandarin is the language most spoken at home after English, reflecting the growth of the Chinese community and the significant cultural and economic contribution it is making to our City.  

2023 bids farewell to the Year of the Tiger and welcomes the Year of the Rabbit; the fourth of the twelve Chinese Zodiac animals and often considered the luckiest.  People born in the Year of the Rabbit are said to be calm, confident, patient and peaceful with an emphasis on attention to detail.  

I hope the Year of the Rabbit brings you happiness, prosperity and good fortune.
