Nestled between the shiny glass buildings of Darling Harbour, Chinese Garden of Friendship feels like a secret spot. Entering the garden, you walk into a piece of traditional Chinese landscaping in downtown Sydney. Walk past small waterfalls, exotic plants, and pavilions, and watch koi carp swim in lakes. Sit down at the Teahouse for Chinese tea and dim sum, and visit the Dragon Wall to understand its symbolic bond between New South Wales and Guangzhou.
