Docklands Dragon in hibernation

The Docklands Dragon amazed locals and visitors last month during the Chinese New Year festival.

The 100m long, 10m high dragon was certainly a spectacular sight to behold and attracted plenty of onlookers during its two-week stint in Docklands.

The dragon was part of the wider Chinese New Year celebrations along the Yarra River and was commissioned by Eureka Skydeck, in partnership with the World Trade Centre and the City of Melbourne.

Eureka Skydeck CEO John Forman said he was amazed by the amount of interstate, international and local people who visited the dragon.

He said the dragon was now in storage but hoped it would return to Docklands in 2015 to celebrate the year of the sheep, but support of funding partners would be needed to make this happen.

The Docklands dragon is part of a long-term strategy for growing Chinese New Year celebrations in Melbourne, tying celebrations in Chinatown to festivities along the Yarra River.

“The dragon is part of the plan to illuminate the Yarra during Chinese New Year,” Mr Forman said. “We hope to see people following a trail along the Yarra through to Docklands in future years.”
