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.
It is a beautiful garden, not to be missed. Thank you for sharing it.
We have been to Sydney many times and for some reason have missed it until this visit. So glad we found it this time!
I haven’t been there in years! The gardens look gorgeous.
It really is a lovely and peaceful place right in the city.
Hi Jim & Kerry We will be in Sydney tomorrow about 2PM for a couple of weeks and will take the opportunity at some stage to view these gardens. Might see you about the place! Regards

Hope you enjoy the garden Peter & Janet. We have returned home now so see you back in WA.
The gardens look fabulous. Definitely on my ‘to see’ list if I ever go to Australia.
You must come….you won’t be dissapointed.
