"Enter the dragon" Top 5 Page for this destination Chinatown Tip by iandsmith
Chinatown, Sydney: 36 reviews and 86 photos
The dragon is an important cultural symbol to the Chinese and so it seems appropriate that the one animal (apart from birds, particularly ibis [see pic 5]) that you will see lots of at the Chinese Garden of Friendship is the Australian Bearded Dragon, a fairly common lizard throughout the land of Oz.
In Chinese mythology dragons are seen as benevolent guardians and are associated with good fortune. The Dragon Rock seen in pictures 2 and 3 draws your eye whenever you are adjacent to the Lake of Brightness.
One spot I particularly liked was the waterfall, strangely without any special title, just a waterfall, that's all. Its boisterous tone is such a relief from the drone of the city outside the walls that it has an immediate relaxing effect upon you.
