“Nice”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Not the best of weather but my parents enjoyed it and i enjoyed seeing them relaxed during their visit to Sydney. Definitely more relaxing during the week than the weekend.

“Tranquil and beautiful”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

We visited the garden on a hot afternoon and it offered a serene and shady escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's beautiful. Watch out for lizards and bearded dragons!

“A pocket of peace in a frantic city.”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Do not miss this beautiful spot. Although small, the garden is beautifully laid out, with many turns and twists. The cliff face is made use of to create levels of interest. For those who want to live the experience, you can hire Chinese costumes.

“Great service, beautiful gardens”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We found this place by mistake and couldn't resist going in.
Staff on the front desk were very friendly and helpful (plus we got a student discount).

The grounds are very well maintained with clear walking paths, but still feeling like you're part of the garden. We were provided with a map for information, and the subtle signage around the gardens provides more information on the buildings and plants.

Very relaxing, highly recommended after a busy day in the CBD!
