I didn't realize that you could walk right up the steps to the Opera house and not have to pay a thing. Amazing architecture and will be wonderful for all ages. Botanical gardens are beautiful, wonderful smells, and plenty of open grassy areas to enjoy a packed lunch or play with children. Absolutely amazing. could have stayed all day.

Took tripadvisor's advice and went on this really scenic walk and it is definitely one the best things to do !! Take the time to stop and enjoy the views.. Stop at Maquarie's point and take picture with the iconic opera house and harbor bridge Continue all the way to skypoint via Hyde park !

After a very very long flight from Seoul to Sydney, it was fabulous being out in this beautiful park, with spectacular views. It wasn't too crowded either, during winter.

A fabulous way of seeing the opera house and harbour bridge from a different perspective. Avoid the crowds and see an icon from a more peaceful perspective!

Expect to walk. But you'll be rewarded with a nice view and a pleasant day. We enjoyed people watching along the way and also taking photos!

Pick up a sandwich and walk over to the Botanic Gardens near the opera house. The green lawns are just begging you to sit and relax awhile. Take time to relax and enjoy the view.

It would be a great shame to visit the Opera House and miss out on the walk through the Botanic Gardens. Even if you're not interested in what's growing there, wandering through this green space with the harbour on one side and the towering skyscrapers of downtown on the other is a sublime experience. The cafe in the middle does... More
