The gardens are beautiful - so peaceful despite being on the city edge. A poignant part of New Zealand's history.

For a history buff, or a first time visitor to Otago, a visit here is necessary to complement the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum next door. It is here you will find a wall of interesting history on the arrival of ethnic Chinese migrants in the Otago region during with the gold rush era beginning in the 1850s and later on, their significant role and influence in this region. There is an entry free of $10. There were few other visitors on the overcast and wet day I was there. Allowed for quiet and peaceful enjoyment of the garden's landscapes and water features. Tea house on site.

Walked round garden as part of Chinese New Year celebrations. Fairly busy but still time to appreciate quiet and beautiful planting and design.

These are traditional Chinese gardens, similar to what you see in China. The garden consists of paths, water features, planting and rock formations laid out in accordance with Chinese philosophy. The wall of the early history of the Chinese in New Zealand is well worth taking the time to be read. It is located in the city centre, it is worth to visit when you visit Dunedin.
