Chinese Garden Of Friendship, Sydney Reviews
What a beautifully curated garden! Sure it costs a couple of dollars to get in but it is worth it. It has an easy to follow path that let's you take in all of the awesome flora and fauna living there, while providing a few seats here and there so you can really drink it all in. A must see if you are in the area!
Little piece of paradise in the heart of a busy city. So quiet and peaceful and they have put a lot of effort into the gardens. So many awesome photo opportunities, and there's also the option of a tea ceremony and wearing traditional clothes. Keep an eye out for the horoscopes hidden around the garden!
Escape the sun Lovely manicured gardens. Lots of people on the day we went however good way to get out of the sun. Pics is of Water Pavilion. Great option for outdoor wedding back up if it rains. Didn't go with this option though as couldn't gain access early enough to set up if it did rain. Additional charges by the hour.
A must see if you're visiting Darling Harbour. The garden is quite compact, about 2 acres or so, but it feels a lot bigger and parts of it are great for some quiet reflection. The gardens themselves are absolutely beautiful with waterfalls, lily ponds, pagodas and lots of trees and are kept to a high standard, the small entry fee is well worth it. Even though it's mostly aimed at Westerners it has the traditional Chinese ambience and theme which is done tastefully, it doesn't really feel like a tourist trap. There's a little tea house on site that serves tea, coffee and dim sum in addition to Western options, it's also (surprisingly) licensed.
The gardens are very tranquil considering that they are located in the middle of a busy city. They are beautifully designed. Be sure to stop for tea or coffee and quiet your mind in this special place. I think the tour available could be better with more enthusiastic guides.
