    We went here after a day of traveling. It was a much needed break in our day. It’s a lovely place to sit and relax surrounded by gorgeous scenery and lots of adorable lizards!
    Peaceful Stroll
    Chastity_F, Aug 2022
    Peaceful little stroll through the gardens. Nice and quiet. You forget you’re in the middle of Sydney. Tip: The Gardens are right beside Darling Harbour- the ferry back to Circular Quay is on the farthest side of Darling Harbour, Ferry Wharf 2.

    When we came to chinese garden on 25 desember. It was close. We have to go there already arrange the time with another place we would to see. We were dissapointed when to know its closed. Better not to sell in its closed time. Tq

    Picturesque peacefulness
    Helen_R, Apr 2021
    The Chinese Gardens is a garden full of wonderment wherever you look. Steeped in so much rich chinese culture, it was so great to see something different from western culture gardens. The aesthetics and the peacefulness of the garden was welcoming. Very picturesque. I can't wait to go back.

    Beautiful garden
    Sally_N, Jan 2021
    Went with my partner and it was a beautiful place to visit. It’s definitely worth going if your also visiting the city
    Charming place
    Mina, Oct 2020
    Small but absolutely magnificent garden in the heart of Sydney City. Its best to visit as soon as it opens (and especially weekdays) because the garden is much better enjoyed when there's fewer people inside. There's plenty of fauna too: lots of koi fish, water dragons, baby ducks and turtles. The price is generous as I'm sure they could have made it dearer to get more money out of it..

    Excellent. Have a wonderful trips. $8 is okay but parking at darling harbour square is $19 per hour. It is very expensive. Total is $27 for one hour visit.

    CaniceWallace_T, Sept 2020
    I found some places need to be repaired. Such as the word missing in one of the building. And also the astrology on the ground is fading.
    Tranquility 🤩
