Amazing sights, you can't come to Sydney & not do this. Bring a picnic for lazing in Botanic Gardens after....

I don't know why but all the hype I've ever heard about the Opera House just didn't do it for me. Our visit here coincided with much work being carried out around the grounds and the Opera House looked like it needed a good refurb

The very calm and relaxing walk from the Opera House to the Botanic Garden is very beautiful! The walk is about 3 minutes long and is a very nice compliance to the Botanic Garden.

Walking through the Botanic Gardens you can almost forget that you are only yards away from busy McQuairie Street and Circular Quay. The tree barks and textures are as interesting as the flowers.

Ok but on a hot day it is just a big park you want to get from one end to the next.. More scenic than the busy streets with cars and people.

Absolutely beautiful ~ there are some species there I never even knew existed! A must for families, adults and children alike will love as there is a Disney Fairies walk on at the moment.

The gardens are well kept, with lots of diversity. The weather was excellent at this time of year (September). It is great for couples or families
