Chinese Garden of Friendship Tours

The continental city of Sydney offers travelers options that go beyond the strictly Aussie. The Chinese Garden of Friendship, modeled after the private gardens of the Ming Dynasty, is just one of the multicultural experiences this jewel by the sea has to offer.

Opened in 1988 and designed by Sydney’s sister city of Guangzhou, the garden is a nod to the Chinese culture and heritage that already exists in and around Darling Harbour. The lush gardens, tranquil ponds and scenic waterfalls pay homage to the friendship between Sydney and Guangzhou. Travelers can wander between ornamental pavilions and babbling brooks before settling lakeside to enjoy peaceful reflection. Hot tea and traditional dim sum are also served at the garden’s teahouse.

Practical Info

The garden is located near Tumbalong Park and is accessible via public transportation. Take the train to Town Hall Station and exit south onto Bathurst Street or take the ferry to Darling Harbour. Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 12 and under. The garden is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and until 5:30 p.m. during daylight savings. It is closed on Christmas and Good Friday.
