The new Australian Chinese Zodiac aims to promote understanding of Chinese and Australian cultures. The new zodiac was developed by president of the Chinese Precinct Chamber of Commerce - Wayne Tseng who saw similarity between the characteristics of Chinese and Australia native animals.

The development of the new Zodiac involves consultations with Chinese heritage experts and experts on the characteristics of Australia naitve animal. To the surprise of the panels of consultants, we were able to find a matching pairs of animal that shares common characteristics.

Formed in 2000, the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce represents a growing Chinese community and business community across Australia. This non-profit organisation dedicates its energy to build bridges between Chinese and the mainstream Australian community. The organisation undertook many initiatives including Chinatown Trade Fairs, bringing the first Chinese New Year celebration to other capital cities across Australia.
