The essence of developing the gardens was to recreate the harmony of a traditional Chinese garden. The diverse flora that dots the garden, coupled with the soothing sounds of the cascading waterfalls makes for a heavenly destination to unwind.
The towering willow trees provide shade while making a home for the diverse birdlife at the gardens. The lotus plants, on the other hand, colour the water surfaces beneath which colourful fish swim. These are the sights and sounds of nature that 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 making mention of the intricate architectural style on site. Designed by Chinese landscape architects, the overall design of the garden 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 long, but the most amazing one is Chinese New Year that 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.
