the walk from opera house to the botanical gardens along with the harbour side walk inside the garden are a treat for your eyes. the view of the harbour bridge, the north sydney skyline, the waves and the cool breeze blowing across your face can make your day!

Gorgeous scenery, a fabulous oasis in the city, allows you to pause and take it all in. Even if you just cut through the gardens to get to Macquarie street, it's worth the diversion.

What a lovely waterfront manicured area! We really enjoyed this walk and ended up doing it a few times. It was so nice to see how much the city cares for its public spaces.

You can easily spend a couple of days walking around in downtown Sydney and around the harbor. The Botanic Gardens are beautiful and tranquil. The Opera House is not to be missed.

A wonderful walk for locals and visitors alike. Spectacular view of harbour bridge and opera house. Start at Mrs Macquaries chair and walk around to the Opera house.

Just walking and taking time to smell the roses is a lovely way to see Sydney. Even though you are minutes away from the CBD you can escape the hustle and bustle and take time out to revive your soul. Lay under a tree, practice yoga, have coffee, explore and recharge in this peace of paradise in a busy dynamic... More

We went here for a walk at 7 am of July 6th. The atmosphere was cold but refreshing. The gardens are beautiful and the walkway is very well maintained. The views of Sydney harbour bridge and of the Opera house are stunning , especially if you reach upto the Mrs. Macquaire's chair viewpoint.

Visited this area twice. Once running (Sydney is a great city for running) and once walking with my wife. The Opera House is impressive and the gardens are a delight. They have great variety and interesting nooks. Walking along the seaside to Mrs McQuarrie's (?) Chair is wonderful way to experience the harbor.

So was to get around this city and it was nice to walk from one attraction to another all in one day. And, you're surrounded by a gorgeous harbor!
