From the harbour around the Opera house and along the walk of the Botanical gardens - fantastic views of the city, wonderful trees, flowers and birdlife - not to be missed. As a photographer, there is no better place to get wonderful shots of the city, the Opera house and the Harbour bridge.

Loved walking around the gardens, enjoyed the different herbs especially! I would ask for tea at the cafe as the coffee was a little bland.

Really great except in March 2014 they were doing a lot of work around the Opera house which made some photos difficult

Really relaxing and the gardens are a lovely area to walk though and relax in. If you want to go to the Governor's Mansion you will need photo ID with you.

This is a walk which leaves you feeling on top of the world. The iconic views of the Sydney Harbour and Bridge, the Royal Botanic Garden and the Opera House are inspirational. It's suitable for all fitness levels and safe anytime of the day, but particularly stunning first thing in the morning. It's very popular with walkers and runners alike.

The Botanic Gardens and the Sydney Opera House are must visit places in Sydney, so taking the walk is definitely a nice way to relax. The walk is easy to follow and provides amazing scenery throughout the whole trail.

So much greenery in an urban setting is always beautiful. Very nice for a quiet relaxing walk and beautiful city skyline views. Lots of interesting trees, if your not from Australia.

The gardens are beautiful and when you emerge from them onto the Harbour and the Opera House it is just magical. Great photo opportunities.
