Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A few minutes out of town you will find a beautiful haven with so much to offer. It’s so quiet there and you can’t help but feel relaxed. There are good toilets, grassy areas, covered picnic tables, covered bbqs, walking paths around the ponds, lots of ducks, water hens, swans and of course the lovely Tribute Gardens. We had a late lunch there on a Saturday and sat there for nearly two hours, chatting, laughing and feeling so relaxed and happy.

Whilst a small garden, the surrounding area is well maintained with a nice BBQ area.

The gardens are nice to walk through & relax.

The discovery of gold in Australia in the mid 1800s attracted great interest from miners from all over the world including Europe, America and China. When gold was first discovered at Lambing Flat ( Young) in 1860 the area was swamped by miners wanting to seek their fortune.

Amongst those miners were Hermann and Johann Tiedermann, German brothers who built the dam when they started the Victoria Hill sluicing claim. Water was valuable during this time because water washed dirt from the gold. In the 1870s the brothers sold it to a group of Chinese who worked on the site, the sale was never documented and the records show it is Crown Land. This area has been known by residents in the area as Chinamen's Dam since the late 1880s.

From 1885 to 1901 the railway locomotives stopped here to replenish their water supplies.

In 1992 the Chinese Tribute Gardens started to be developed, " In recognition of the contribution of the Chinese community to the settlement of Young in the 1860s and to the ongoing contributions of the Chinese people to Australia as a Nation".

When I arrived here on the morning of the 3rd October, I was the only person in the large carpark. There are toilets here as well I was able to walk through the gardens and enjoy their charm and serenity.

These gardens are a must see in Young. Very tranquil and well set out. Great place for a picnic in fine weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there.

Beautiful gardens - you can’t take a bad photo! We visited in autumn so the leaves were turning various colours, very beautiful and a great place to sit quietly and contemplate or just relax. The gardens are part of a larger parkland with picnic tables and BBQs. Also an excellent place for family get-together.

This is well worth an hour or two at - lovely Chineses gardens, with interesting things for children to look at around every corner. We were lucky and also saw two Black Swans with their 6 cygnets on the lake.

Doesn't look much from the car park but well worth a walk around, very picturesque and quite serene. Hard to imagine the drama that iccured hete during the gold rush days

A peaceful reminder of the angry encounters that happened here, not so long ago. Tastefully designed and planned, this place is worth a visit.
