The orange gates welcome you to a world of pure beauty and quiet serenity. The two lion statues at the entrance, representing yin and yang, are known to guard and protect the gardens throughout the day. Past the gates, visitors are ushered into glorious beauty, a stroll that feels like walking back to ancient China.

The essence of developing the gardens was to recreate the harmony of a traditional Chinese garden. The diverse flora that dots the garden and the soothing sounds of the cascading waterfalls make for a heavenly destination to unwind.

The towering willow trees provide shade while sheltering the diverse birdlife at the gardens. On the other hand, the lotus plants colour the water surfaces beneath which colourful fish swim. These sights and sounds of nature make this garden a top attraction.

Sit and soak in the serene beauty of these gardens. There are beautiful vistas all around the garden. For those visiting with the kids, they will certainly enjoy discovering the garden’s nooks and crannies, with surprises along the way.

It is impossible to talk about the heavenly aura of the Chinese Garden of Friendship without mentioning the intricate architectural style on site. Designed by Chinese landscape architects, the garden’s overall design was based on ‘Yin-Yang’.

Walking through the garden’s main pavilion, you cannot help but take note of the centralised pagoda. To get here, however, you’d need to stroll through the garden’s numerous features. The gardens also host remarkable events all year, but the most amazing is Chinese New Year, which brings the garden to life with colour and pomp.

Experience the serenity of Sydney at the Chinese Garden of Friendship for a memorable day trip.
