The traditional Mooncake symbolises the Moon Festival, a cultural festival celebrated throughout Asia and this particular mooncake references the rich histories and contributions of the Chinese and Vietnamese communities within the City of Yarra from the early days of the 1850s Victorian Gold Rush to present day Collingwood.

The Moon Festival has strong connections to family traditions of coming together both to make mooncakes, celebrate the festival and watch and appreciate the full moon, a symbol of harmony and unity.
