Great on a sunny day!

Watch out for the joggers and cyclists but this is such a nice part of Sydney that all visitors should see.

One of the iconic Sydney strolls. Brilliant on a warm evening too. Keep going along the east side to the pool.

Entering from Macquarie Street walk across towards the café, Most of the trees and plants have name and information plaques. There are many birds in and around.

A fabulous walk with spectacular views, especially on a warm sunny day. We enjoyed sitting on the grass and watching the world go by. The grounds are very well kept and a popular place for locals and tourists alike to visit.

Very pleasant stroll to the Opera House. Botanic Gardens are well kept and offer great views. Easy access to the Opera House from the city as well. Recommend if looking for a walk to the Opera House.

The walk is amazing and suitable for everyone of all ages. The view is amazing, the harbour on one side and the park & city on the other. You may get to see a passing cruise ship, traditional tall ship or luxury yacht. I recommend stopping for a picnic in the park!

I was a teenager when they started to build it and although it took 16 years to finish, it's now a world famous icon, and deservedly so.

the gardens offer an oasis in the city and great views across the water to the opera house and bridge. Just lovely with a great café and good photo opportunities

A wonderful place to walk at your own pace, beautiful flowers and trees, also a few birds around. I even saw an "ombu" which is a typical tree found in the Pampas of Argentina.
