Chinese Garden

Sydney sightseeing

Behind a concealed wall in Darling Harbour there exists an authentic Chinese Garden that can be visited for a small fee. Inside you wander over little bridges and through archways, and are inspired by the carefully maintained shrubs, bonsais and Chinese decorations.

Chinese Garden

The garden was designed by Sydney's Chinese sister city, Guangzhou, and opened as part of Australia's bicentennial celebrations in 1988. It celebrates Sydney's rich history with Chinese immigrants and cultural integration, and offers city-dwellers a tranquil space to escape to. Inspired by traditional Chinese culture and spirituality, calmness pervades the whole garden.

The Chinese Garden of Friendship offers an opportunity to dress up in traditional Chinese garments and have your photo professionally taken. You can purchase souvenirs and take a break in the garden tea house. You can also learn about Chinese plants and growing practises and the many beliefs surrounding the specifications and design of the garden.

Chinese Garden

If you walk through Darling Harbour at any time of year, you are sure to find other cultural celebrations, events, markets and public attractions. You could easily spend a whole day in the area, and if you do, be sure to add Sydney's Chinese Garden of Friendship to your to-do list. Address: Corner Harbour St &, Pier Street, Darling Harbour, NSW, 2000.
