Chinese Garden of Friendship

You’ve been hearing me going on and on about the Chinese Friendship Garden (which really should be the Chinese Garden of Friendship. My bad), and it’s about time you know why.

It’s truly a beautiful tranquil place. Built to celebrate Australia’s 200th anniversary, the garden is the local Chinese community’s way of preserving and sharing their rich cultural heritage. The garden was built with Chinese and Australian expertise and materials.

For only AU$6.00, you can experience the centry-old traditions of Chinese landscaping, architecture and garden design. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

For an additional AU$10, you can rent Chinese style clothes while you walk around and take pictures inside the garden. They also have a teahouse in one side of the garden, serving various kinds of Chinese herbal tea. You can also bring in your own food inside the garden, and there are plenty of places to sit and have a picnic.
