Chinese Garden of Friendship

The Chinese Garden of Friendship is a traditional Chinese garden that is situated in Darling Harbour near the Chinatown of Sydney, Australia. The Chinese Garden of Friendship was designed using many of the same features from private gardens during the Ming Dynasty and aims to offer some insight into the culture of China. The gardens officially opened in 1988 and symbolize the bond of friendship that has formed between Australia and China. With beautiful landscaping, rich plant life and stunning sculptures, the Chinese Garden of Friendship is the perfect haven from the bustle of Sydney.

  • Drink traditional Chinese tea in the teahouse located at the Chinese Garden of Friendship, which is a great way to transport yourself from Sydney to China in a matter of minutes.
  • Check out the Dragon Wall while at the Chinese Garden of Friendship, and you will be amazed by this ornate structure that symbolizes the bond between Sydney and its sister city of Guangzhou.
  • Take a stroll around the small lake at the centre of the garden, or take a break in the Water Pavilion of Lotus Fragrance to enjoy the peace.

Sydney features a smart and efficient system of public transportation so it will not be hard to reach the Chinese Garden of Friendship without the use of a car. The easiest way to get there is to take the train and get off at the Town Hall station that is just a short walk from Chinatown and the Chinese Garden of Friendship. There are also tramlines that go through the Darling Harbour area, so you should have no problem finding your way there. Once at the garden plan to spend the day exploring, as it is a large compound.
