Chinese Garden Of Friendship, Sydney Reviews
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.
Very nice Chinese style garden with very good lookout areas and a cafe. The price to get in is only $6 for adults which to me seems good. When I went it was in late autumn hence to beautiful array of colours. This place does have toilets located at the southern side of the complex. There are a few benches around to take in the view but not many. You got to be careful on some of the paths as they are just large boulders and it's not suitable for push chairs and prams
Absolutely fabulous park with beautiful grounds!!! We spent around two hours there exploring and taking family photos, honestly could have spent more time! There is a children’s map program where you can spot the Chinese Zodiac signs over the course of the park... very cool. There is also fish feeding around 11:30am (check days) if your around then. There is also a Chinese tea shop which we did not attend.
A stunning traditional Chinese garden. I love coming here and identifying the different plants and checking out the Bonsai’s, some of which are 100 of years old. They also have high tea which is really lovely. Definitely a great place to come when you want a break from the concrete jungle.
Absolutely love how beautiful this place is. My friends and I went there recently for the tea ceremony, and I can't praise them enough on how organized and educational it was. We had a fabulous day walking around, exploring the design and historical facts behind the set up. We also loved that you can rent a costume for $10 and pose in the garden with your friends. It's awesome! (Though, they can do with a bit of a wash.)
