Owner description: A haven of tranquility in Sydney's bustling Chinatown, this fascinating garden with waterfalls, bridges and fish-filled ponds was designed by experts from China and reflects designs dating back to the 5th century.

The Chinese Garden of Friendship is located close to Darling Harbour, Maybe I have been spoiled from my times in Asia but I really didn't see anything that would make me do more than walk through it, I found it pleasant but uninspiring,

Located at Darling Harbour we visited this small and quiet spot right in the middle of Sydney. Will you need a place to unwind yourself after a hectic day, go there. The atmosphere is so relaxing with a small lake, several waterfalls and beautiful trees. There is even a small place where you for a small fee can be dressed in classical chinese outfit and take a walk in the park to imagine how this would have been 100 years ago. We enjoyed it highly.

This was amazing, and this is coming from a 19-year old man. Well worth the $5 (I think it's less...) and so calming.
