Friendship Garden was planted by experts from Guangzhou - the sister city of Sydney. Sydney's Chinatown was by then already quite rich, and full of "islands" of traditional Chinese culture.

The garden was officially opened in 1988 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Australia and was called the "Garden of Friendship", symbolizing the beginning of a strong culture of friendship between China and Australia.

I must say that unlike ornamental Chinese gardens (Garden of Friendship and Sydney, in particular) from the western is that they are not planted flowerbeds or "smoothed" lawns. Instead, in the picturesque landscape recreated wilderness areas and "appear" waterfalls, mountains, lakes and forests. According to the tradition of classical Chinese gardens, the Garden of Friendship used the famous principle of the use of four key elements: water, plants, rocks and architecture. Uniform and natural combination of these elements should create harmony and tranquility of the outside world.
