“An unexpected delight.”

This little known garden is an absolute delight. The day when I visited was very hot but the natural shade provided by the trees made it so much cooler. The variety of styles within the gardens made for a very different experience. The Japanese Gardens were a feast for the eyes and the ears, with the sound of running water from the waterfalls and streams. The staff were most welcoming and helpful and for a $4 entry fee I spent a couple of hours wandering through the garden, the Peacock Art Gallery and Aviary. Do not miss visiting the garden if you are in the Sydney area.

Peacock Gallery, Japanese Gardens, waterfall, Duck River Walkway and Bike Path. They also have Scented Garden-Wedding Pavilion. We saw Kangaroos and wallabies. There was so much best to visit and see it for yourself.

One of Australia's finest gardens includes a superb Japanese garden. And it's just a short distance from Sydney's centre. There is indeed more to Sydney than the harbour and its environs!

Pristine and calm this is a haven filled with Japanese gardens, peacocks, wallabies and emus. $4 entry fees for the main garden, also includes an aviary tour. Small scale allows persons with limited mobility to enjoy this as well. Nested in a diverse community of Turkish Vietnamese and Arab immigrants, not the typical touristy stereotypic Aussie image. It's a 30min walk from the Auburn train station. Younger kids will probably want to ride in a cab or bus to get there. Pick up a doner kebab take out and eat in the picnic area outside. ( no food permitted in the gardens)

for those of you who know Sydney, Auburn is not a tourist destination. But this garden in the middle of this suburb is just amazing. it is a Japanese garden, a rose garden and an Aussie garden attached. we visited it in the winter, but it was still beautiful. they were also preparing for a dance festival the week after we visited. it was a pity we couldn't be there for the celebrations. it is very cheap to enter and parkings are plenty, totally recommend it.
