Chinese Garden of Friendship
Kids just love exploring this secret garden and it’s hidden pathways. It’s a beautiful oasis in the heart of the city and a great place to visit when in the Darling Harbour area. They have wonderful daily activities just for kids too.
Much more than just a city garden, the walled Chinese Garden respectfully recreates the philosophy and harmony of a traditional Chinese garden with waterfalls, lakes, exotic plants, pavilions and hidden pathways.
With koi carp swimming in the lakes, willows weeping in the breeze and a Teahouse serving Chinese tea and dim sum, be careful when you discover Darling Harbour’s secret garden—you may never want to leave.
Daily fish feeding
Feed the magnificent koi at 11.30am and 3.30pm every day in the Lenient Jade Pavilion. Help the team attract the fish by clapping loudly, then share in the experience of feeding these colourful ‘living jewels’.
Accessibility: Pathways and pavilions in the lower garden are accessible for wheelchairs and prams; however steps and rocky pathways make the upper part of the garden difficult to access.
