Ever since the Gold Rush era, the Chinese have established a strong community in the heart of Sydney. The Chinese Garden of Friendship was created in response to the community's need to preserve this unique culture and share it with the rest of the world.
It was 1984 when the Guangdong Landscape Bureau in Sydney agreed to plan and design the layout for the garden. Darling Harbour was chosen because it was close to Chinatown and it was a prime site for attracting tourists from all over the world. On 16 March 1986, the ground was officially broken in a traditional ceremony by the Chinese community and the Darling Harbour Authority.
The garden is a wonder. Wandering through the peaceful garden, you cannot but help admire the beauty of the garden with its rocky mountains, forests and lakes filled with giant craps. Much of the landscape are designed to work in harmony with nature in accordance to Chinese belief.
