Lost in paradise in the Chinese Gardens. You forget that you are in the heart of all the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Beautiful gardens that are tranquil and a please to kick back and enjoy.

A beautiful place to walk through and chill out, very well done. Nicely laid out, now just to shut out the noise of the traffic. Good Luck!

A beautiful garden in the centre of the busy city centre. Was surprised that there was an entry fee, however once inside the cost is justified. The gardens are set out wonderfully, and offer some great photo opportunities, a stark contrast to the bustle of darling harbour on the otherside of the walls.

Lovely sanctuary nestled between Chinatown & Darling Harbour. Very peaceful (well, it was before we arrived with the kids in tow) & beautiful gardens and lakes with various birds, giant carp and the odd lizard to look at.
We took a stroller to the gardens, but found it too difficult to get around as there are many steps and uneven paths. Best to leave the stroller at the entrance!
Was surprised that you had to pay to get in, as I thought it was free. Glad we went though.
