Map, showing Winter Solstice at the Garden

Come and celebrate the winter solstice at the Chinese Garden of Friendship and the newly opened One Dining.

To celebrate the winter solstice, The Chinese Garden of Friendship is inviting you to explore the magic of the Garden after dark! As you make your way along the winding paths enjoy this rare opportunity to connect to nature in the evening. 

In Chinese culture the Winter Solstice is celebrated to symbolize the victory of light over darkness, that the days will start to grow longer and bring a sense of balance and harmony to people's lives.

During your visit enjoy a traditional music performance by Nicholas Ng and SCM Chinese Music Ensemble from 6-8.30pm, and finish your evening with a delicious feast at the newly opened restaurant within the Garden, One Dining

Admission for Friends of the Garden members is complimentary. Non-member admission tickets can be purchased at the main entrance on arrival, $12 for adults and $8 for children
