Owner description: A haven of tranquility in Sydney's bustling Chinatown, this fascinating garden with waterfalls, bridges and fish-filled ponds was designed by experts from China and reflects designs dating back to the 5th century.

Such a lovely peaceful way to escape the hustle and bustle of a big city.
It's a peaceful oasis of ponds and gardens and waters falls while sipping some Chinese green tea. It's like being in one of the palaces, or temples in China

When living in such a steel cage like Sydney, it is amazing when you have little pockets of greenery like this. I'm not just talking about a park, but something much more lovely and scenic which makes you feel as if you're at peace from the hustle and bustle from the city for a short time.

I love coming here, especially on Sundays when it is gold coin donation for entry, as it helps me unwind from the week. Would highly recommend to anyone, traveller or resident alike

Sydney has 2 peaceful places. The main park and this place. Lots of colorful gold fish in the ponds. Really tranquil setting.

A beautiful, peaceful place. Reasonable priced and great grounds. A good explanation throughout explaining the significance of the different parts of the garden. A true gem.
