Chinese Garden of Friendship

Love gardening?  You would want to plan a walk in the Chinese Garden of Friendship.  The garden is within walking distance from the Darling harbour.  At a small entrance fee (about $6), you would embrace a mixed environment of plants, trees and fish ponds.  Fish feeding is available at certain time of the day.  You can also enjoy Chinese cuisine if you wish.  However, the construction works near the garden may cause a little disturbance.
