The Botanic Gardens are amazing, and I thoroughly recommend the free guided walks given there by enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers. It's worth walking all the way to Macquarrie's Point for the view

Walk from Opera House to Botanic Gardens to have the best view. Be careful: many locals use the Botanic Gardens for exercise!

it is a bit far walking from the opera house to the garden but it is all worth it. with a lot of interesting things while you walk past to the garden, the pathway is clean and the the scenery is refreshing

Go for a walk at the end of the day on the weekends and finish drinking a beer at the Opera bar. Very nice place to be.

This walk is perfect with bright scenic views, and in the end, its the best place for photoshoot for sunset. Unfortunately this walk will be closed down at 5PM ( on certain seasons ), and we couldnt make it for the second day evening.
