Dictionary of Sydney: Chinese Garden of Friendship
A Chinese tradition evolved after the fifth century, of erecting gardens that that bring the serenity of nature to crowded noisy cities, made it’s way to Sydney.
Sydney’s Chinese Garden at Darling Harbour celebrates the sister state relationship between Guangdong province and New South Wales. It was a gift for the 1988 Bicentennial celebrations and is an important cultural site for the local Chinese community, with cultural and visual links to nearby Chinatown.
