A place that you should visit if you appreciate gardens. The only let down was that it was quite small.

As my wife said, "a Chinese movie could be made her and no one would know the difference." Very well done.

This is a beautiful serene place to visit right near the Dragon Museum. A little hidden gem right in the heart of Bendigo.

Interesting gardens. Quite small but well-located in the midst of Bendigo. Kids seemed to like the main pavilion and the water features. Included with entry to the museum.

This is include in your ticket to the museum. It is a good representation of a Chines garden, quiet, cool and restful. Spend some time here to admire the intricacies of Chinese culture and their love of peace, comfort and beauty.
