Amazing natural piece of wonder in Sydney, the Royal Botanic Gardens are massive. Choose your pace, trail and walk on. We were lucky to catch the bridal march of a wedding. I can understand why this place would be a popular wedding venue.

A great place to spend the afternoon. Lots of places for the children to run, have a picnic, or just take in the views. In my opinion a much better Botanical Garden than the one in Brisbane. Don't forget to check out the Gift Shop, it has some really great gifts.

The Royal Botanical Gardens are a plain beauty! The trees, plants, walk along the seaside, the garden shop and tiny special gardens inside calm you from the inside and also prompt candid photos

Great place to walk around or run in the mornings. Well marked trails and surprisingly good for bird watching/viewing.

This is a must visit in Sydney.. Specially on the summer and spring time..it's wonderful,,relaxing to your eyes and soul.. The place was so huge..you can take a pick where you want to stop and put the blanket and have a bit of RnR.. It's also give you a great spot to take picture that show in background harbour bridge...

We wnet for a stroll in these gardens early morning. The atmosphere is very pleasant. The lawns are lush green and the walkways are well maintained. The differrent types of trees are well cut. The views of the harbour from these gardens are exquisite.
