Chinese Garden of Friendship

FREE ENTRY – simply show your delegate pass to the front desk.

Located only a short 2-minute walk from ICC Sydney, the stunning Chinese Garden of Friendship is a hidden oasis from the hustle and bustle, that respectfully recreates the philosophy and harmony of a traditional Chinese garden in its waterfalls, lakes, koi fishponds, exotic plants, pavilions and hidden pathways.

Opened on 17 January 1988 for the Bicentenary, the Garden was modelled after ancient private gardens in China from the 5th century and is a masterpiece of traditional Chinese culture infused with Australian characteristics.

Designed by the Guangzhou Landscape Bureau, the Garden was laid out according to the ancient Chinese philosophy of Taoism and its principle of Yin and Yang and imitates the setup of traditional Chinese landscape paintings of miniature mountains and water.

If you fancy staying for a while, experience The Gardens by Lotus, an onsite restaurant in a heritage listed teahouse serving dumplings, Chinese tea and fiery Sichuan cuisine.
Opening hours: Daily 10am to 5pm
