Chinese Garden of Friendship

Chinese Garden of Friendship

Initiated by Sydney's Chinese community the Chinese Gardens were designed by Guangdong Landscape Bureau in Guangzhou (Sydney's sister city) and opened in 1998 as part of the bicentennial celebrations. Winding paths, steps and bridges lead past streams, carp-filled water lily ponds, pavilions, sculptures and carefully planned landscapes. Tea totallers can climb the 'tea house' stairs to where Chinese brews are served including shou mei (old man's eyebrows) and t-ieh-kuan-yin (iron goddess of mercy). There is a selection of cakes, sandwiches and the odd Chinese delicacy. The view of the garden from the tea house makes this a very pleasant stop for lunch.
