It does not take long to navigate your way around the gardens, yet it is a great little sanctuary to allow people to take a break from the city while still in the city. Expect a sea of tropical goldfish, waterfalls and an abundance of nature as you navigate your way around the circuit, and then you find yourself at a cafe.
The Chinese Gardens is great to come to once in a while, and is highly recommended for visitors to Sydney who might appreciate it slightly more than the locals would. However, if you live in Sydney you will still appreciate. This is not a a garden you will want to come to too frequently, otherwise the experience will start to get really boring as opposed to refreshing.
