These beautiful gardens were designed and landscaped to celebrate Australia’s Bicentenary in 1988 – a result of the close friendship between Sydney’s Chinese community and Guangzhou in China.
Situated at the end of Darling Harbour they offer a beautiful and peaceful escape from a busy city – while highlighting the skyscrapers in the background.
The garden represents the principles Yin-Yang and the opposite elements of earth, fire, water, metal and wood.
Although there were not a large range of flowers in bloom when we visited – what was on show lit up the garden.
The carp and water dragons were just basking in the warm sun.
On your next visit to Sydney make sure you included a walk through these beautiful gardens.
