What a walk from the Opera House to Lady Macquarie's Chair via the Botanic Gardens....stunning view of the CBD on one side and the sea on the other....and people jogging in the afternoon....one of the rare spots wherein you have everything - sea, gardens, tall buildings, architectural landmarks - in one place!

If you're looking for a quick break away from the hustle and bustle of the city, I found this short walk to be just the thing for me. Wish majestic views of the bridge, opera house and the gardens it's hard not to relax and feel at piece.

Loved it. Take a bottle of chilled SSB, a picnic and a good book and watch the harbour traffic pass you by as you doze on the lawns. Brilliant, and for nothing !

If you don't see anything else in Sydney, be sure to visit the Botanical Gardens. The garden is vast and awesome. Very different than gardens in my state of Calif. The walk to the Opera house was filled with beautiful views on the water. Great area for happy hour and oysters.

It was nice to have a walk along the Botanic Garden, I went here early in the morning and it was really quiet. For me it was just ok, because the beautiful is in the end when you can see the Opera House in the end. Good for relax

It was the best walk I hd taken in years, the sights, the air, the nature around and then the garden: perfect combination for a perfect family walk, discovering one of the main places in Sydney.
