SBS is ringing in the Lunar New Year with a distinctive line-up of programming across the SBS Network from 16 January to 5 February to celebrate diverse cultures, traditions and food, and encourage all Australians to be part of this special time of year observed by over 1.5 billion people around the world. Welcoming the Year of the Rabbit and Cat, content will be available in more than nine languages including Cantonese, English, Filipino, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Nepali and Vietnamese to showcase the breadth and diversity of celebrations.

SBS is delighted to celebrate Lunar New Year across our expansive network and highlight the richness of cultures, languages and traditions that makes up contemporary Australia. It's a very significant celebration and SBS is proud to invite all Australians to take part, said SBS Managing Director, James Taylor.

SBS will also be on the ground at Lunar New Year events in every state and territory in partnership with community festivals - including with Multicultural NSW to light up the sails of the Sydney Opera House.

These include curriculum-aligned activities, downloadable worksheets, and a fantastic art activity by illustrator, author and educator Freda Chiu, and illustrator and muralist Christina Huynh.
