Sydney’s Chinese Garden of Friendship in Photos

Sydney’s Chinese Garden of Friendship in Photos

During our recent visit to Sydney, we felt the need to escape the city for a bit and relax prior to flying out to Hawaii. We had already spent some time in the Royal Botanic Gardens taking photos of Sydney Harbour so decided to head over to Darling Harbour and the Chinese Garden of Friendship.

It’s one of the only Chinese Gardens outside of Asia and offers significant insight into Chinese cultural heritage. Developed by Sydney’s sister city Guangzou in China, it truly feels like you’re in a whole different world and is a great place to visit if you want to escape for a couple of hours.

If you’re in Sydney and have some spare time on your hands, go check out the Chinese Garden of Friendship and relax in its beautiful ambience. Admission is only $6 for adults ($3 for children) and you can even dress up in traditional Chinese clothes if you want to spend a little more!

      I lived only 5 minutes walk away from this garden, but never visited it either :)

      Definitely worth the visit! Glad we were able to help you discover it, hopefully you enjoy it as much as we did when you go.

    I used to walk past this place all the time when I lived in Sydney a decade ago. I’m definitely going to check it out come my next visit there.

    it looks really pretty there. i remember my trip to Sydney included a few hours at the big asian market they have over there. it reminded me of the swap shop we have here in florida. it was awesome.
