You can find some serenity on this walk. Circular Quay can be a zoo at any time. Escape the madness and regain your sanity on a walk that gives wonderful views.

When you walk around to the opposite side of the rock wall from the Opera House, you have magnificent views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. It is great to stop here for the tourist photos. The walk is lovely and the views are fantastic. Wheelchair and stroller accessible too.

We walked from the Rocks, through the gardens and Government House, over to the Domain, to MacQuaries Seat and around through the gardens at the waters edge around to the Opera House and back around to the Rocks. It was fantastic weather, walk ways that are plenty wide enough for 10 abreast, and all in good condition. A lovely area... More

The walk around from the Opera House to the Botanical Gardens through Farm Cove is an easy stroll that provides great views of the harbour and Sydney itself.

Such a beautiful easy scenic walk along the ocean. Bring a blanket and have a pic-nic, or peek over the edge and watch the puffer fish milling about in the seaweed.
