The activities are part of Dreamworld’s Chinese New Year holiday celebrations that also include a meet-and-greet by a Mandarin-speaking guide; a film about Australian animals in the Imax theatre; a live Australian animal presentation; and a Chinese banquet.

Dreamworld’s international sales manager Erin Rolfe said that after several years of conducting sales visits to China, the dividends are paying.

"January 26 is the beginning of the biggest week for us, where we get hundreds and hundreds of Chinese tourists through our gates daily," said Rolfe. "If all goes according to plan, then this is going to be Dreamworld’s strongest Chinese New Year yet."

Last year, China emerged to become Dreamworld’s second-largest international market, behind New Zealand.
