The walk from the opera house in sydney to the botanic gardens is a short and lovely walk. Beautiful views of the water, it's worth taking the time to walk this short bit.

Such a beautiful back drop and views from the Opera House and the Gardens. We walked for miles and were fascinated by the amount of fitness conscious people there were about in the park, which was great to see; from school children to the office workers lunch break. What a place to live.

A beautiful area of Sydney centre. The gardens are beautifully kept and are a real pleasure to explore. The views are breathtaking especially when you get closer to the opera house. A very well worn piece of grass marks the best spot for a fantastic picture of the Opera house.

Loved the building, definately advise that you take the tour of the Opera house. Our guide was very informative & we even got to see some of the artists in dress rehearsal. The botanic gardens are located right next to the Opera house & are absolutely stunning.well worth a visit.
