Feel the sun on your face in your own secret garden in Darling Harbour’s Chinese Garden of Friendship.

Have you ever imagined your own secret garden? A place to escape; to breathe deeply and feel the sun on your face. Darling Harbour’s Chinese Garden of Friendship is that place. 

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.

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. The closest passenger drop-off point to the garden is on Harbour Street. 

The Chinese Garden has a fully upgraded accessible toilet and baby change facilities on site.
