Nestled between the shiny glass buildings of Darling Harbour, Chinese Garden of Friendship feels like a secret spot. Entering the garden, you walk into a piece of traditional Chinese landscaping in downtown Sydney. Walk past small waterfalls, exotic plants, and pavilions, and watch koi carp swim in lakes. Sit down at the Teahouse for Chinese tea and dim sum, and visit the Dragon Wall to understand its symbolic bond between New South Wales and Guangzhou.

Cela est impressionnant de voir cela entouré de bâtisse.

The price is very affordable, easy to access, and the surroundings are to discover when you've finished the tour
Beautiful Garden with wonderful landscapes. Must see attraction in Darling Harbour place. Has a nice falls in the mid of the city. Kids can enjoy the activity trail, while there is different kind of tours for adults. Dressing up in Chinese tradition is very interesting one. The pond in the garden has colourful fishes, watching them is peaceful time pass for both adults and kids.
The garden is well maintained with beautiful and charming landscape. $6 admission and it offers a quiet and tranquil place in the middle of Darling Harbour. There are lots of shades in the garden and even when visiting on a very hot day (like I did) you will still be able to find places to cool down. The Chinese Garden of Friendship is a beautiful hidden gem in the heart of the city, definitely worth a visit.
