A garden really well put together, a really good place to relax and enjoy. Just outside darling harbour, very close to nice and cheap places to eat.
Cheaper entry fee for students

Of all the tourist attractions we visited while in Sydney, the Chinese Garden of Friendship was truly one of the most memorable and enjoyable stops. The entry price was too good for the peaceful ambience and beautiful up-keeping required.

While the Garden looks small on the map, it is quite big inside. We easily spent 2+ hours walking through the trailwalk and checking out the ponds.

Before exiting, we bought some tea and buns from the cafe. It was one of the best and "authentic" buns I've ever had. The staff was very lovely too.

Quite simply, we had the best of times at the Garden, and will definitely visit over and over again everytime we're in Sydney.

Was astounded by how lovely this garden is. Even though the garden is in the centre of Darling Harbour it is calm and beautiful. We'll worth the six dollar entry.
